Ace of Cakes Canceled

Food Network announced Sunday Nov. 21st that there will only be one more season of Ace of Cakes. Too bad because this was the only cake-oriented TV show that was not a complete snore fest. Cake Boss, Cupcake Wars and those Food Network Cake Challenges are absolutely wretched.

Chef Duff Goldman said via the Charm City Cakes blog, “There are, of course, lots of mixed feelings about this news: we love our crew, we love being a part of a funny, genuine show that highlights our fair city and the work of a bunch of goofball friends. But Ace of Cakes has been in production for nearly five years—it’s like having a film crew document all four years of high school and then some. Though it’s incredibly bittersweet, after over 110 episodes, we think it’s time to catch our breath and explore some exciting new opportunities.”

According to TMZ, who was the first to break the news, the network is currently working on some projects that feature Chef Duff.  Read the entire TMZ story HERE.
