Looking forward to seeing the end result. Duff has a very talented staff!!
i love ace of cakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone see a finished picture yet? I can only find the sketch online.... Don't they know this is just as important as to what the First Lady wore:)
miss ace of cakes and wish you were still on TV! super job on cake!
Sorry...cant believe its leaning and not straight....Seal is great though...
OMG! Congrats to you! Im now turning green with envy! I love that cake...I bet they did too!
Think the Cake Boss would have made something more spectacular.
Sorry but I'm not impressed either. Most everything is cut out and stuck on. Cake is leaning, fondant on middle tier is not laying right and I don't like the stars sticking out of the cake. I do like the presidential seal, but for ace of cakes I was hoping for something that shows more skill. Sorry.
I think the cake is nice to me. leaning could be how the picture was taken?
HEY CHARM CITY... "IT IS WHAT IT IS "....... AWESOME!!!!!!!....great job and congrats on receiving the opportunity...REALLY!
i am not impressed by the cake. for such an important event you would think the cake would showcase their best work. im wondering if the lighting is the result of the color of the cake and the lean? i dont get the color scheme and why the cake is leaning. this is just my opinion-this cake far out surpasses the skills i could ever hope to have. but c'mon the cake is from duff and his staff. would have expected a much better cake.
Really? I can't believe people are so openly criticizing someones work....would you stand infront of Duff and say all this to his face and think its ok?
This expression is used ALOT: if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
People are allowed to have an opinion but sheesh, if this was my cake and I read all this I would be in floods of tears!
The cake isn't leaning, its the angle of the photo....you can tell as the background line isn't straight either. I think this cake is amazing, and I certainly couldn't make it -its huge!
Please guys, can you point out the good instead of the bad all the time?
Its a huge amazing cake......
I agree with buttom_monn. The cake os very elegant
I would tell Duff I wasn't impressed. When you charge $1500 minimum for a cake and are a cake star....people will have certain expectations. I expected more. I can voice that opinion. It's an open forum.
I didn't say you couldn't voice it, there are just nicer ways of commenting.
Usually you say sorry after you have done something wrong.....You said sorry before your comment because you know that what you are about to write is not nice
If its not something nice, you didn't need to say it..and then apologize for it?!
I just think there enough crap in the world and maybe it would just be nicer to spread a little love instead :)
I'm also not blown away by the cake. Seems very plain for this amazing event.
Yeah...I think so too. It's ok, but kind of plain. I was expecting more.
Wow!! I've never seen such venom on CC; I thought it wasn't allowed. I'm with button-moon. I'm sure the cake is actually perfectly straight and in the requisite colours of red, white and blue, mixed to the precise shades. (Looks like UV light may be distorting the colours in the photo.) Did you expect an over-the-top creation? I'll bet this cake was carefully designed following much consultation. It is elegant and most suitable for the occasion. Those medallions, seals, etc are certainly not "just cut out and stuck on" as L.fredden suggested; I think they would have been hand-crafted. It takes a skilled artisan to make something elegant, beautiful, uncomplicated and accurate. I think it is wonderful!
I was talking about the stars, stripes, leaves and banners. I was hoping to be wowed because I think charm city cakes does spectacular work. This in my opinion did not live up to their hype. As I mentioned before, there is some nice work, but overall it's not up to par with the rest of their reputation.
Yes, I LIKE THE OLD SAYING IF YOU CANT SAY SOMETHING NICE SAY NOTHING AT ALL, BUT SOME PEOPLE LIKE TO BE NASTY, MAYBE WE CAN SEE THE CAKE THEY HAVE MADE FOR AN INAUGURATION....CRICKETS
