Ace of Cakes Season Finale looms

For all you Duff Goldman fans out there, Ace of Cakes is having its season finale this Thursday, April 26th at 10pm.  That's a bit late for me, so may I suggest, for any of you out there who are early birds like me, another showing?  In true Food Network fashion, the finale will air multiple times in addition to the April 26th airing.  Here are the complete times:

  • April 26 @ 10pm

  • May 8 @ 10pm

  •  May 12 @ 2pm

  • May 13 @ 5pm

Can Duff and his crew create a football themed cake that's massive even by Charm City Cake's standards?  Tune in to find out. 


And the winner is: Tyler Florence

With the South Beach Food Network Awards over and done with, it's now onto the more important question; which male Food Network chef is the hottest?

The winner, not surprisingly, is Tyler Florence with 46% of the votes.  Not bad for a guy who makes the "ultimate" dish.  I guess HE is the ultimate dish.  OK that was a really bad joke and I apologize.

I was a bit surprised to see that Alton Brown, perhaps my favorite male chef, came in second with 21% of the total vote.  Maybe everyone really likes all of his gadgets...I think I'll leave that one alone.

Here are all of the results:

  1. Tyler Florence  46%

  2. Alton Brown  21%

  3. Bobby Flay  13%

  4. Dave Lieberman  10%

  5. Guy Fieri  8%

  6. Duff Goldman 2%

Poor Duff brought up the rear.  Maybe his explosions are only contained within the kitchen.

Do you disagree with the poll?  If so, feel free to let me know your thoughts.

This week's poll is along the same vein.  It's time for you to weigh in on the women.  Which female chef is the sexiest?


Ace of Cakes baker Duff Goldman speaks to Newsweek

OK all you Duff Goldman fans out there, your favorite blow torch weilding cake man poured his heart out to Newsweek's Julie Scelfo this morning.  In his interview he explains how he got wrapped up into the whole crazy world of cake building and his motivations behind some of his crazier cakes.

I must admit, until I read this little interview, I never knew just how many sides this guy had.  I thought he was a bit of a poser with his shaved head and rock star style, but he actually is in a band and knows how to rock.  So I guess I need to take back some of the things that I may have said about this guy in the past.  Perhaps I'll even check out an episode or two of his show.  After all, Goldman's description of finding his calling in life can be easily related to by anyone.

"When we got to the cake-decorating section, it was kind of like the scene in Harry Potter where the lights came on and the angels were singing and it was like, "Ohhhhh!" This is obviously what I should be doing."

I also like the fact that he threw in a Harry Potter reference.  It's almost enough to make me tune into his show.  Almost.
