You probably recognize Duff Goldman from his stint on The Food Network'sAce of Cakesshow,but Goldman's real day job is owning and operating Charm City Cakes bakery in Los Angeles.In an effort to bring his love of baking to the masses,he opened a second bakery,Duff's Cakemix,that lets people get in on the fun of the cake-making experience.
You can select cupcakes or any desired cake size,then your choice of cake flavor and filling,then your frosting type (buttercream or fondant) and any toppings or air brushing you'd like.The Duff's Cakemix team then helps you assemble your own cake right then and there (unless you'd rather just buy one already made,of course,but that's not as fun!).For those who aren't local,the bakery will soon begin shipping out their creations,including cakes,cupcakes,and cake in a jar,nationwide.
Um,we're sold!But being as we really,really which cake,out of all of his own creations,is his personal favorite.
"Pumpkin Chocolate Chip.It's the perfect cake for the fall,which is my favorite season.It has just the right amount of fall spices (cinnamon,nutmeg,etc.) but it's not overpowering," he told us."Also,we usually make a buerre noissette buttercream and that's one of my greatest creations." Mmm.In terms of the best-seller,though,that's the confetti cake."It's colorful,kids love it,and adults love it because they feel like kids when they eat it.Oh,did I mention it's crazy delicious?"
