Ace of Cakes

Hosted by Duff Goldman

Cake-Tastrophe

It's a busy week for Charm City Cakes. This week they're busting out 40 cakes (last year at this same time they only had seven on the books). Duff has been brought in by Starbucks to make a special holiday cake at Union Station in Washington, DC. After days of working around the clock, Duff and his team have created a train that looks like it's made of gingerbread. Duff delivers the train to scenic Union Station, where he adds the finishing touches before an audience of hundreds. It's a teenage girl's 16th birthday and her mom has ordered a goth cake, complete with skulls, spiders, etc., to celebrate. Mom is driving all the way from North Carolina to pick up the cake. Charm City has been invited to make three massive cakes for a guy's "Big Fat Greek Birthday." One of the cakes is an old theater with "It's a Wonderful Life" adorning the marquee; another cake is a girl sipping a soda at a soda fountain. (Episode: DB0209L)
