Betty Takes the Cake

Duff delivers a cake to Betty White for her favorite animal charity, Morris Animal Foundation. Duff: "Betty has been an animal lover forever and is so sincere and avid about raising money for all kinds of animal awareness, including the Morris Foundation."

"Oh, Duff, You Shouldn't Have"

"Betty White is one amazing lady," says Duff. "I've worked with Betty before on a movie called You Again, and she was razzing me on the set there in California and she razzed me some more at the Morris gala when I told her my one scene in the movie was cut. She loved that! She is a true American sweetheart and I think I speak for everyone when I say 'We love you, Betty!'"

A Grand Cake for a Grand Slam

Duff: "There are some really amazing sporting events that we make cakes for, and the US OPEN is one of the biggest! The fans are rabid, the US OPEN staff are so enthusiastic and the players are legendary. I'm just glad a stray tennis ball didn't land in this cake!”
