Last week, while I was at the International Home and Housewares show I got together with Duff Goldman, celebrity chef, TV personality, and owner of Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, MD, and Charm City Cakes West, and Duff’s Cake Mix in Los Angeles, CA.
You guys might know him as the “Ace of Cakes” from his show of the same name or as the host of Sugar High on The Food Network. Turns out, Duff’s a pretty busy guy!
Lucky for us, he made it a point to come visit the Mr. Food Test Kitchen booth to talk to us about a couple of the craziest cakes he’s ever made and to offer some of you a chance at winning some of his brand new cake mixes and cake kits. They’re super cool!
One of the questions we asked Duff was, “What was the craziest cake you’ve ever made?” That’s when he told us about the time he was asked to make a life-size baby elephant cake for a private birthday party.Or how about this life-size NASCAR cake with real spinning wheels and an exhaust that actually blows smoke?
Duff also shared that his true motivation is to help people bake and decorate cakes just like he does in his bakeries.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out Duff’s Premium Cake Mixes, which, by the way, feature low-protein, low-gluten flour, unique flavors, and finish baked “patterns,” it’s about time you did! They’re available in Camouflage, Pink Camouflage, Pastel Tie-Dye, and Blue Suede. We got a chance to test these out in the Test Kitchen, and couldn’t decide which one was our favorite! They’re all so cool!
And they go way beyond just cake mixes, Duff designed kits that include special ingredient packs to create specialty cakes with unique flavor profiles. These are available in PB+Chocolate with Peanut Butter Ganache, Minty-Chip Chocolate with Minty Mini Chips, and White Mocha with Espresso Powder.
If you’d like to win a set of Duff’s Premium Cake Mixes and Cake Mix Kits, including Camouflage, Blue Suede, Minty-Chip Chocolate, PB + Chocolate, and White Mocha, all you have to do is comment below and let us know which flavor you’re most excited about and who you’d bake this extra-cool cake for!
