Cake Master Live: Demo with Duff
Food Network show Ace of Cakes and Charm City Cakes’ Chef Duff Goldman speaks about his life and work, then performs a live demo showcasing some of his signature designs and delicious recipes.
Opening the night with a brief talk, Duff speaks about his life and work, and how a classically trained pastry chef and metal craftsman turned his unrelated passions into two internationally recognized cake shops, a bestselling cookbook, a wildly successful line of branded products, and eight network cooking shows.
Duff then turns the tables as he performs a live demo showcasing some of his signature designs and recipes. As Duff explains, he doesn’t just make “pretty sculptures,” but delicious cakes as well, with over 25 mouthwateringly unusual flavors. And it’s not all sugar flowers, marzipan and tubs of fondant in this demo. Duff reveals how a cake master wields mallets, metal cutters, latex gloves, boba straws, Gorilla Glue, power drills, painters tape and drywall screws to make true confectionary masterpieces. With his unique tips, tricks, and tastes of Charm City Cakes, Duff brings viewers into the kitchen to learn some of the best ways to turn basic ingredients into works of art.
