I really missed out this show! Ive been designing my son's birthday cake and I've got a lot of idea on this but “Ace of Cakes” and the celeb baker who runs it, Goldman, will no longer be aired on the Food Network channel after next year. The show's 10th and last year will begin airing in Jan. People take out payday loans regularly to try and get one of these cakes made on this show.

This title has:

Too much consumerism
Great messages

Is It Any Good?

Ace of Cakes offers an entertaining behind-the-scenes look at what goes into designing and creating master cakes in one of the most popular bakeries in America. It also shows off the high-end skills that Chef Duff and his talented team bring to cake design, including intricate decorating work and sugar sculpting.

Some of the team's quirky habits and crazy antics -- like trying to play hockey with Olympic-caliber disabled hockey players and carefully flying across the country with elite clients' cakes in hand -- are definitely fun to watch. But it's the high level of teamwork and professionalism exhibited by this likable team that really makes the show a positive viewing experience.
