Duff Goldman Bakes Halloween Cake to Look Like Ozzy Osbourne's Zombie Head (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Oct 14th 2011 5:00PM
With Halloween around the corner, former 'Ace of Cakes' and current 'Sugar High' star Duff Goldman stopped by 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) to bake some spooky goodies. Working with Sharon Osbourne and guest-host Wayne Brady, Goldman demonstrated how to ice cupcakes to look like ghosts and brains.

For his cake-de-gras, Goldman unveiled a creation he'd baked to look like Ozzy Osbourne's severed zombie head. While Sharon was wowed, we were somewhat disappointed Ozzy's cake likeness wasn't munching on a bat.

A Bananas Foster Food Fight Breaks Out on 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 11th 2011 7:00PM
Leah Remini, Duff Goldman, and Holly Robinson Peete make up after a food fight on 'The Talk'Bananas Foster is tasty, and its ingredients are surprisingly easy to throw. That's what Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini, and chef Duff Goldman (from 'Ace of Cakes') found out on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) during a segment that was supposed to be about cooking. Or at least assembling deserts. But it quickly became more about disassembling deserts when Goldman started sprinkling some of the ingredients on Remini's head.

Remini wasn't having it. "You know what?" she said, turning to Peete, who was holding a frosting sleeve. "Don't play with me." Remini squeezed the sleeve to shoot whipped cream at Goldman. Then the whipped cream and bananas started flying everywhere as the trio declared war, and an honest to goodness food fight broke out.

Bake-Off! 'Ace of Cakes' vs. 'Cake Boss'

by Marina Zogbi, posted Nov 19th 2009 9:00AM
Duff Goldman, Ace of Cakes, and Buddy Valastro, Cake BossIn this corner: Champ Duff Goldman, star of the Food Network's custom cake show 'Ace of Cakes.' Every week at Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, Md., Duff and his team of hipster bakers build confections that defy both imagination and gravity for events such as weddings, movie premieres and the Super Bowl.

And in this corner: Contender Buddy Valastro, star of TLC's 'Cake Boss.' Each week at Carlo's Bake Shop in Hoboken, NJ, Buddy and his crew (most of whom are family members) create equally elaborate cakes for customers ranging from Sweet Sixteens to the American Museum of Natural History.

Surely there's room on TV for two wildly creative cake artists? Yet fiercely partisan fans of each show have been taking sides and letting their preference be known. (Just Google "Ace of Cakes vs. Cake Boss."

Bravo orders from the Dessert menu

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 26th 2009 10:02AM
top_chef_logoIf you're a fan of Top Chef, there's nothing tougher for the contestants than desserts. Just this past week during 'restaurant wars,' did you notice that one team decided to have no desserts on their menu at all. They just didn't want to risk blowing it.

Well, Bravo noticed, not just last week but all through the Top Chef series. Bravo's creating a Top Chef spinoff called Just Desserts in which chefs will have no choice, they'll have to deal with sugar, icing, cakes and struedels.

Top Chef: Just Desserts is the second Top Chef spinoff, after Top Chef Masters. I'm anticipating Top Chef: Maitre D's down the road, aren't you?

TLC wants to master the barbeque grill

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 29th 2009 11:33AM
TLC_logoYes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but this a bit much. TLC has given the greenlight to BBQ Pit Masters, a new food show about American barbecue competitions. Does Bobby Flay, Mr. Food Network grill master himself, know about this? I can see him getting as red as his hair when he reads about it.

So, TLC is saying that this new show, a documentary about the über-competitive world of competitive grilling, will run for eight hour-long episodes commencing December 2. How this will be different from similar food competitions on other networks -- like Food Network -- remains to be seen.

Cake Boss needs to be more like Housewives, less like Ace of Cakes

by Joel Keller, posted May 26th 2009 11:02AM
Cake BossAfter the big Jon & Kate premiere last night ("Look, honey! They're not sitting on the couch together! They must be getting a divorce!"), TLC premiered their new series, Cake Boss. It features Buddy Valastro, owner and head pastry chef at Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, NJ, and shows how he runs the bakery along with his very Jersey family. Think about a cross between Ace of Cakes and The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and you'll get an idea of what's going on here: lots of hand gesturing and swearing being thrown around with the fondant and buttercream.

At least that's what the preview episode the network aired about a month ago showed. It was loud and obnoxious and looked like a lot of fun. Last night's premiere, though, concentrated more on the funky cake-making aspect of the job than the interpersonal relations between Buddy and his crew. What a snooze.

ER'ER'
(10PM, NBC)
Is he or isn't he? That's the not-so-secret secret, as original series star George Clooney is rumored to make a cameo appearance.

What's confirmed: Clooney's fellow former co-stars, Eriq La Salle and Julianna Margulies return just weeks before the April 2 series finale, as La Salle's Peter pops in to visit Noah Wyle's ailing Carter. Margulies is back as Carol Hathaway, and the actress says she only agreed to visit when Clooney agreed to return as Hathaway's love Dr. Doug Ross.

As for what the on-screen lovers might be up to now, it's all very hush-hush, but producer John Wells has hinted that Hathaway-Ross fans will be happy with the storyline.

Survivor Tocantins'Survivor: Tocantins'
(8PM, CBS) 18th season premiere
Well, there's certainly no time wasted in this season premiere.

Season 18's 16 castaways are shipped off to the harsh interior Brazilian state of Tocantins, where they've already been divided into two teams. And before the contestants have a chance to form any alliances – or even get to know each others' names, for that matter – each team is forced to oust one player.

And that's a mere taste of the drama to come, from a contestant pool that includes a college soccer coach, a member of the R&B girl group SWV, a former Miss Ohio and, at age 19, Spencer Duhm, the youngest 'Survivor' contestant ever.

(10PM, A&E) series premiere
In the midst of his very public cancer battle, Patrick Swayze is making a professional comeback in this drama, playing a veteran FBI agent who may be playing a little fast and loose with the rules.

Charles Barker's (Swayze) world is about to become even more intense when he's assigned a young new partner, Ellis Dove (Travis Fimmel). Dove is happy to be paired up with Barker until the duo goes undercover to crack a weapons-smuggling ring and the rookie gets a look at how dangerous and all-consuming undercover work can be.

And there's also the little matter of the FBI's internal affairs agents, who want Dove to spy on his mentor, a suspected rogue agent.

ER'ER'
(10PM, NBC)
With Pratt's shocking exit in the season premiere, the upcoming return of original cast members Anthony Edwards and Noah Wyle and ongoing rumors of George Clooney's return, 'ER' producers are making sure the show ends its 15-season run with style.

And tonight, add another major shake-up to the mix, as Maura Tierney's Abby Lockhart bids County General adieu. Unlike with Pratt's death, Abby's departure is less dramatic, as she decides to leave Chicago with her son and husband, Goran Visnjic's Luka Kovac.

Fans of Tierney needn't fret that she'll be gone from TV land for long, however; she'll play Denis Leary's love interest on 'Rescue Me' next spring.

'The Cho Show'
(11PM, VH1) series premiere
Sassy comedienne Margaret Cho's last TV venture -- the 1994 ABC sitcom 'All-American Girl' -- ended with a quick cancellation and charges by some in the Korean-American community that she'd helped perpetuate negative stereotypes.

And that explains why the star is hesitant about accepting a Korean of the Year award in tonight's opener of her new series, a mix of reality and scripted bits that sheds light on her career and her hilarious relationship with her parents.

Cho's 'rents are happy she's been recognized with the honor, but in the face of such a potentially stressful event, the funny lady turns her attention to a more pressing matter: What will she wear?

The Next Food Network flub

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 18th 2008 9:31AM
next food network starThe Food Network is one of my favorite channels, I admit it. I can tune in just about anytime and enjoy Ace of Cakes or Good Eats or Boy Meets Grill or Paula Deen, whatever. Generally speaking, they seem to have a good, consistent and enjoyable programming package.

Okay, that's what's good about FN. Now for the sour to go with the sweet. Last night I was catching up with The Next Food Network Star, watching the second showing of the reality competition show because I wasn't able to watch the original broadcast. No big deal, right? Wrong!
