Ace of Cakes




One of my favorite shows to watch is Ace of Cakes. I'm sure that comes as a shock to all of you! For those of you who aren't familiar with the show I'll tell you a little about it. It comes on The Food Network where cameras go inside the Baltimore Bakery, Charm City Cakes. This isn't your ordinary bakery. They known for making very extreme yet realistic looking cakes. Every week I am blown away by the cakes they make! Some of my favorites are:





With Arkansas Razorbacks, of course!!!





Not only can they make anything you can possibly imagine they have about any flavor you can possible imagine as well! It's insane! Some seem a little crazy for a cake but I think I would enjoy them all...with a few exceptions.
Flavors:
Almond amaretto cream*almond poundcake*apples and cinnamon*banana caramel*bananas foster*black forest*blackberry sourcream*blueberry muffin*brownie*beurre noisette*butterscotch walnut*cardamon and pistachio*caribbean black cake*carrot*cheery and almond*chocolate*chocolate cherry*chocolate chip muffin*chocolate espresso*chocolate mint*chocolate orange*chocolate rasperberry*dulce de leche*egg nog*ginger and green tea*italian orange and vanilla*lemon curd and berries*lemon poppyseed*lemon poundcake*marble*mudslide*orange and ginger*peaches and cream*peanut butter and jelly*peanut butter cup*pear compote and ginger*pear spice*pecan pie*pineapple coconut*pumpkin chocolate chip*pumpkin and cinnamon*red velvet*smores*strawberry shortcake*thai iced coffee*thai iced tea*tiramisu*white*white chocolate ganache*white chocolate raspberry*yellow

Now, don't run out to Baltimore and expect to order yourself a cake! They are booked up until 2010!! And they don't do a waiting list.

OK, so after watching this show and dreaming of a Charm City Cake to call my very own I sat around this weekend and tried to decide exactly what I'd want them to make for me. After much thought I think I would want a giant cupcake. One with a silver cupcake liner, colored icing, and fun sprinkles. As for the flavor, this was the toughest decision. If I were in the mood for chocolate (which is most of the time) I would pick the brownie but if not I'd go for strawberry shortcake.


What about you? If you could have then design any cake in the world for you, what would it be? And what flavor would you choose?

Melissa said...

I LOVE Duff and Ace of Cakes! I always try to catch it. I would take anything they do. I'd love for them to do a big Texas A&M cake for Bobby for the wedding!

Heather said...

I think I would want a cake shaped like a purse. Maybe red velvet or maybe strawberry shortcake with real strawberries inside...OK, now I'm hungry!

Kelly said...

I know - they are crazy!!!! I love them!!!!!
I think I would want a sonic cup made out of red velvet cake!

I LOVE that show. Have you ever wondered if they taste as good as they look? They really are amazing. I think I'd get a helicopter cake in honor of Derek. That would be really neat. I'm with you though, chocolate brownie sounds divine!

Julia said...

I love Ace of Cakes too!!! I record it every Thursday night. My favorite episode was the Harry Potter cake. I think if I had a cake made it would have to be another one of those, vanilla cake with chocolate icing...and Duff would HAVE to take part in making it!

Shannon said...

That is one of my favorite shows!!! I love the cakes they do that are replicas of buildings. So, I would like to have them make my parents a cake of Bizys! If I was getting a cake for myself, it would have to be a waffle cone of icecream. I think I would want to try the white chocolate raspberry, that sounds so good!

RachelM said...

I have never seen that show but I need to start watching it! Those cakes are amazing!
No idea what I would have them do for me! It might take me awhile to think about it...

Megan said...

I love to watch Ace of Cakes, too. I don't know what kind of cake I'd have them bake for me.

Staci said...

Oh my goodness! These cakes are amazing!!

His Doorkeeper said...

I feel terrible...I can hardly ice a cake and make it look good much less like a work of art! Good grief! Wonder what one of these art works cost???

Katie said...

Hmmmm...an open book? Too boring maybe. A running shoe, a Christmas tree, and love the waffle cone with ice cream, Shannon!

Megan L Hutchings said...

So, I watched the show for the first time last night...WE LOVED IT! They are such a unique group of people with a true gift!

Never watched the show...but your fascination with confectioner's sugar-topped baked goods reminds me...Cupcakes on Kavanaugh is nearing completion. We'll have to double date there in the next few weeks...have I mentioned how excited my little wife is that you are moving back to LR?

Welcome to Our Lives... said...

That is incredible! I think a high-heeled shoe all dolled up would be fun!

Caroline said...

WHRER ARE YOU??????? WE MISS YOU AND NEED AN UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!

Kelly said...

I agree with Caroline..........I have been waiting VERY patiently for an update from my good friend Hillary! :-)

This is one of my favorite shows too! I love Mary Alice! I think that the hot dog cake and the chinese take-out cake are a little weird! I am not sure I could eat either of those. However, they look amazing! I think I would either have them make me a red patent leather stiletto or some other fun colorful high heal OR a palm tree or beach tiered cake.
