Standing before the students who had assembled at his bakery to learn a bit of his craft, Duff Goldman issued a warning about cake decorating. "It's a very difficult art," he said. "It's very tough. A lot of people cry. Most of you will not succeed. " Then he laughed. "The thing to remember is: It's a cake," he said. "Don't get too freaked out. " But those words had faded more than two hours later as my hand, holding an X-Acto knife, trembled. Goldman, the owner of Charm City Cakes and star of television's "Ace of Cakes," was telling me to cut two circles out of fondant, which would become eyes for the sugary crab that would sit atop my masterpiece.

"Ace of Cakes" star Duff Goldman whipped up an array of rainbow-colored cakes for Katy Perry's new "Birthday" video. The founder of Charm City Cakes made confections shaped as a cat, a suit (a "birthday suit"), a Rubik's cube, a hamburger and a gift, among others, for the pop singer's video, according to People .  Perry plays a baker in the video, placing cakes on pedestals, spelling out words with candies. The lyrics to the song are written out on icing or with other sweets throughout the video.  That took a lot of close collaboration between the producers and the staff of Cakemix , Goldman's Los Angeles bakery.

"You know when you see John Ellsberry's painted alligator at the end of the 28th Street Bridge that you're in Remington," said Kathleen C. Ambrose, who is researching and writing a history of the more than 200-year-old Baltimore neighborhood that she hopes to have published next year. She has been banging on doors, interviewing old-timers and, in a recent edition of the Remington Community Newsletter asked residents to search their closets and attics for any photographs from 1930 to 2000 that she might use for her book.

Duff Goldman quite literally ate his way across America to film the series "Sugar High" last year - from sea to sugary sea. And we aren't talking Hollywood smoke-and-mirrors eating, where it looks like someone is tasting something but is really spitting it into an off-camera bucket. It was real - all too real, as Goldman now realizes. Bread pudding. S'mores. Apple strudel. Mousse. Maple bacon doughnuts. Bananas Foster. Fried dough. Cookies. Pie. "I was literally eating dessert all day, every day, for seven weeks straight," he says, explaining how he "blew up," gaining no less than 30 pounds, though he was too depressed to get on the scale to see an actual number.
