Food Network confirmed on Sunday that Ace of Cakes is no more. Elaborate cake-baker Duff Goldman, known for his fondant craftiness at the Baltimore-based Charm City Cakes bakery, will be on camera in one last season, which begins in January. According to ABC News, the final (tenth) season will consist of six episodes. Goldman expressed his mixed feelings on 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.
He also added a few post-scripts:
P.S. Yes, we do to actually wash our hands.
P.S.S. No, they're not all mostly styrofoam.
[Any use of non-edible materials is always so that we don't make too much cake just for the sake of it, wasting food. We aren't into wasting food.]
P.S.S.S. And yes, they do taste great.
P.S.S.S.S. Go Ravens.
