In the episode “A Four Letter Word for Pastry,” Duff and his intrepid team at Charm City Cakes travel down to DC for a patriotic pastry party - namely, the USO Gala. As usual, the team works their magic on an amazing cake that dazzled celebrity attendees and kids at Fort Myer - the cake’s final destination - with equal aplomb.
We’d like to extend a HUGE thank you to Duff and his team for their cake and for taking the time to meet so many military families who turned out for a slice.
See the USO cake make its journey from start to finish - a delicious finish at that! - on “Ace of Cakes,” airing at 10pm EST on the Food Network. Please check local listings for the time in your area. And check out our exclusive preview pics below!
