Ace of Cakes

The incredible Mister Barlin graced me with a visit in November, which meant a weekend of crazy adventures such as the polo, the opening of 'How to be a Man' and Impro Picnic. Though it was more than enough to have his company but he surprised with three series of show called 'Ace of Cakes.'

Ace of Cakes follows Duff Goldman and his crew as they bring their client's visions to life. The combination of personalities, client back stories and tight time lines that makes this show riveting viewing, especially if you're a bake-a-holic. If the image above (note the timeliness as tomorrow is Chinese New Year. So may the Water Dragon year bring you happiness, good health and much success) doesn't inspire you to check out the series (which it should) then you need to see it for the dreamboat that is Geof Manthorne. A man of few words, bedraggled, beady eyed ... but there's something about his intensity when he rolls out fondant that makes you weak at the knees. So yes, watch it! Amazing!


  1. Hmm, thanks for the tip. Though it will inevitably inspire me to new levels of madness, I can't wait to watch it!

    1. I think you'll be hooked. It's amazing and I look forward to seeing what mad creations the series inspire. Your work surprises me.
