Goodbye, Ace of Cakes

It’s hard to believe that Food Network is doing away with Ace of Cakes but I guess it is time.  It is the only cake-orientated show I have ever liked.  It seems that every cake show that comes out only serves to get worse.  Cake Boss, Food Network Cake Challenge, Cupcake Wars, et al.  None of them are worth the parchment paper they are baked on.

The word on the streets is there are plans for some sort of Duff only show but so far nothing concrete has come out.  I hope so, Duff is a great natural character.  So on behalf of all the people who have watched Ace of Cakes over the years I would like to wish good luck to Duff, Adam, Mary Alice, Anna, Elena and the adorably sexy Katherine Hill as well of all the others who have served up fondant covered fun.  Adios, cake dudes, you will be missed.

It is cool that Food Network is giving the folks at Charm City Cakes a celebrated swan song.  I wonder if they will do the same for the recently axed Private Chef of Beverly Hills.  I would like one last farewell from the gang at Big City Chefs, some of whom I am proud to count as friends.

The final episode of Ace of Cakes airs tonight at 10/9 Central.
