Decorating Cakes With Duff From ‘Ace Of Cakes’ – I’m Not So Talented
(does the shirt look familiar? LOL)
As I was riding into last night’s event with Chef Duff from ‘Ace of Cakes’, I kept imagining all these beautiful creations I would be whipping out. Oh the talent I saw!! Yeah – not so much.
The cake started out like this.
And ended up like this!! No, I’m just kidding. That was a sample cake they had on hand. Brace yourself… the next image is my actual cake.
….sigh. Well, I tried and truth be told Duff’s new cake decorating line is really cool. I just needed more time to play around and think about what it is I was actually trying to do.
So, let’s talk about what Duff is selling right now – all of which is VERY VERY COOL.
- Cake tattoos, graffiti, gels, texture tiles and wire
- Cake pans, icing, spatulas and mixes
- Fondant, fondant cutters and smoothers
- Decorating tips, sprinkles and pouches
So cool! Everything is available online and at Michael’s. My favorite were the cake tattoos. They are the easiest way to add a little funk to your cake without a lot of effort. You just wet them and press onto your creation.
I was joined by several of my blogging buddies and we got busy getting crafty. Have you ever used fondant before? It’s really not that bad. You microwave it for 10 seconds at a time and just roll it out smooth. Duff’s version really tastes good too. Apparently, typical fondant isn’t so good.
LOL! This picture has a funny back story to it. After I took my picture with him, I asked if he made a funny face and Duff said no. So I said that wasn’t good enough and I needed more from him. I grabbed my friends and we all followed suit. 🙂

(I recently stopped taking those daily migraine pills and I started to not feel right in the cab ride home. So after I inhaled dinner, I jumped into the bed and got on a call with my GG partner Audrey to catch up. I relaxed for a bit and the kids joined me.)
