When Ace Of Cakes star Duff Goldman heard about this couple, he insisted that he personally design their wedding cake. To get the cake to Vegas, Duff will travel from Los Angeles with his head baker in tow. And the couple isn’t the only ones sharing in Duff’s sweet gift – he is making enough cake to feed the entire working press room!
Chef Duff Goldman founded his Baltimore based bakery, Charm City Cakes after discovering the time demands from his day job in the kitchen weren't allowing him the freedom to try his hand at a new career: playing bass as a working musician in a rock band. As he and his team of friends and musicians gained national attention by pushing the boundaries of what a cake could be, Food Network soon tapped Duff and his staff to star in Ace of Cakes. After six years and ten seasons, the show is still wildly popular not only in reruns, but in over 40 countries worldwide. In 2011 the show saw its United Kingdom premiere draw record numbers for Food Network’s latest overseas venture: Food Network UK.
This past summer saw Duff open a West Coast satellite of Charm City Cakes in Los Angeles, Charm City Cakes West. In addition to the new bakery, Duff also stars in the Food Network series, The Best Thing I Ever Ate and Sugar High, and has been featured in episodes of Iron Chef America, The Next Food Network Star, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Drives, Chefs vs. City, Cupcake Wars, Chopped, and has just completed several guest-starring roles in both TV and film.
In 2011, Duff was nominated for two James Beard Foundation awards for both Best TV Food Personality/Host and Best Television Program. Currently, Duff and his Charm City Cakes brand have formed successful licensing partnerships with several companies including Gartner Studios, Blue Bunny Ice Cream, Godvia, and more. Duff is also a sculptor, artist, and musician, has an affinity for wearing his signature hockey jerseys, and is an all around good guy with the cleanest hands in town.
