When one normally thinks of a cake, the image is that of a square or a rectangle covered in frosting with a topping or two.
On Ace of Cakes,Duff Goldman and his team create much more than the basic cake. Their task is to create custom and extremely detailed cakes within a very short amount of time. Once the cakes are completed (sometimes using unorthodox methods), they often travel hundreds, if not thousands of miles to their final destination.
I think this show is fabulous. I love the idea of the challenge of creating cakes that go well beyond what most of us think of a cake. I also love to camaraderie between the team and the creativity it takes to put together their masterpeices.
Excellence in a specific area in adulthood requires years of hard work and study. Excellence in this same area as a child is something to cherish.
Kids Baking Championship has aired on Food Network since 2015. Hosted and judged by Duff Goldman and Valerie Bertinelli, this competition reality show puts its young contestants through their paces. Judged on their dishes based on presentation, taste, and quality, at the end of the season, one contestant is named the winner.
I don’t watch this show very often, but when I do, I am impressed. The level of skill, passion, and talent that these kids have is impressive. I also appreciate that because of the age of the contestants, there is a gentler approach to the competition.
