With the food network shows about cakes people are more interested in cakes. Especially Duffs cakes. I have been asked several times to make a cake that Duff has made. I am not Duff nor do I have a beard. I am Paula and I make 99% of my cakes out of cake and butter cream icing.
I dont know if I should be honored that someone asked me to make a cake like his or embarrassed to say I am not that good..............
Does anyone else here get asked to do cakes like his?

I have been asked to make a couple of cakes that were seen on Ace of Cakes but they were friends who were asking so I told them that I couldn't promise they'd be ask good as what they saw, but I'd give it my best shot - also they wouldn't be paying for a Duff cake.... so that reduces the pressure of having to be perfect. I told them I'd make my version of what they are requesting.

I'd be flattered if I were you! Obviously they think you're that good and from what I see... You Are!
