Inside Access from Chase invites you to this special holiday celebration event with Chef Duff Goldman at Duff’s Cakemix, his DIY dessert design studio where the customer is the artist. This family-friendly evening will begin with an hors d’oeuvres reception including a holiday-inspired menu with wine and mocktails, then decorating will begin.
Each guest will work with pre-baked cupcakes, created by the Duff’s Cakemix team. Duff will visit with guests and offer decorating tips as they create their very own masterpieces. During a casual Q&A guests will hear first-hand about Duff’s life in and out of the kitchen then take photos with guests.
Duff Goldman began cooking at the age of 4, when his mom caught him in the kitchen swinging a meat cleaver while watching Chef Tell on TV. Ever since then, he’s been putting his own crazy spin on food.
In March 2002, Chef Goldman quit his day job and opened Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, MD, where he was able to show off his creativity. The bakery became a household name on the hit Food Network show Ace of Cakes, which aired for 10 seasons. Chef Goldman serves as a judge on Food Network's Holiday Baking Championship and Spring Baking Championship. Currently, Duff hosts and judges the Kids Baking Championship along with Valerie Bertinelli. Duff is also a graffiti artist, a metal sculptor and a musician.
