Duff Goldman is adding another course to his ever-expanding menu with a fifth — yes, fifth – Food Network show, “Duff Takes the Cake.”
The five-episode, half-hour series joins four other Duff-hosted shows including “Spring Baking Championship,” in which 10 bakers face a panel of judges, and “Buddy vs Duff,” where Goldman faces off against “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro. Goldman is also a co-host on “Kids Baking Championship,” which just wrapped its latest season on Sunday, and “Holiday Baking Championship,” which airs every winter-holiday season.
Adding a fifth series puts Goldman up there with Bobby Flay and Guy Fieri in the league of Food Network hosts with the most shows airing in a single year.
“Duff Takes the Cake” finds the “Ace of Cakes” star creating next-level cake creations to celebrate important milestones for people doing good in their communities. From birthday cakes for survivors of the Northern California wildfires to cakes for Goldman’s own wedding reception, each order is riddled with obstacles for the chef and his team of cake engineers to overcome. Making things even more difficult, every custom creation must arrive on time to unconventional locations like a fireworks festival in Los Angeles’ Chinatown or even the middle of a rodeo.
“Viewers will be amazed by the unrestrained creativity and ingenuity of the one-of-a-kind, impressive cake designs that Duff and his extraordinary team of artists create,” said Courtney White, president of Food Network. “No job is too big, and no detail is too small adding a mix of intensity and entertaining comedy to the series.”
“Duff Takes the Cake” premieres Monday, April 15 at 10/9c on Food Network.
