Something about a celebratory cake made for one of Donald Trump’s inaugural balls this past Friday looked awfully familiar to Duff Goldman.

Cake Decorating Classes from Charm City Cakes


Charm City Cakes

catch of the day fish (2)Sad but true: not many of us are destined to celebrate our birthdays (or graduations, or weddings, or anniversaries) with an actual, bona fide Charm City Cake. Those confectionery works of art are just not everyday affairs, unfortunately. But that’s not to say that your homemade versions can’t have all of the decadence and creativity that go into the cakes that put Baltimore’s cake culture on the map. In fact, if you were to attend the whole slew of cake decorating classes that Charm City Cakes has this month, you may well be able to give Duff and company a run for their money by the time you’re done.

Ace of Charm City Cakes



I’m a baker…but not like the artists at Charm City Cakes. So, when I took a cake class there, I have to admit, I was a little nervous. I’d never done anything like that before…but I thought it sounded like fun. And, I’d get to have Mary Smith teach me – how cool is that? Since this is Baltimore, we have a friend in common, but I’d never met her…only seen her on Ace of Cakes. And I’m happy to report, she is as nice and fun and bubbly (and ON IT) as she seemed on the Food Network. (As I thought she would be.)

The week leading up to the class was a really busy one, so I had no time to even think about it, much less get worked up about it. I had a wedding gig – love when people give my brownies as favors! – and had a big delivery to make in Harbor East. And since I am a Langrehr, I arrived early, parked and walked to LAMILL (OH, I miss that place) to grab coffee for myself and for the nice lady working at the front desk at the Legg Mason building. When I got to LAMILL, I realized I didn’t have my wallet with me. The lovely, lovely barista rock star Echo Standing sent me on my way with two coffees…I vowed to pay her back. She said, no. And when I went back in the next weekend, she once again said I was covered. What a peach.


Live Taping of Baltimore Hit Parade




catch of the day fish (2)WTMD has a new Performance Studio, and they’re swinging the doors wide open to make sure everyone gets a chance to see some of Baltimore’s amazing local talent—both of the radio and non-radio variety. In fact, besides the variety of fab musical fare that we’re used to here in the Greatest City in America, there will be some culinary arts on display as Elena Fox of Charm City Cakes attempts to make a delicious cake in under three minutes. We’re hoping they ask for taste testers.

Cake Decorating Classes with the Ace of Cakes!


CCC classes

catch of the day fish (2)If you’ve lived in Baltimore for any length of time, you’ve probably had the Ace of Cakes conversation with at least a handful of out-of-town friends and family. “Do you watch Ace of Cakes? I looooove Ace of Cakes!” “Do you know them?” “Have you ever gotten a cake there?” “Really? It’s right down the block from you?” “Everyone on the show seems so quirky and fun!” Etc, etc, etc. And that’s cool. We dig having a nationally renowned cake bakery in our own backyard. And we’re even more into it now that Duff and company have started offering cake decorating classes where we can pick up some tips and skills, and of course, go home with our very own Charm City Cake.
