“You can't help but smile around a good cake!” says Tracy Quisenberry. An “icing smile,” she explains, is the special grin on the face of a child tucking into a big piece of frosted fantasy. Quisenberry is founder and executive director of Icing Smiles, a Howard County-based nonprofit whose purpose is to bring a free customized cake - and a special experience of joy - to kids suffering from life-threatening conditions. The organization's first cake was delivered by a volunteer baker in January 2010; six months later, the effort went viral, expanding yeastlike to today's more than 6,000 bakers across all 50 states, Canada and the Netherlands (with more in at least a dozen countries just waiting for requests)

Duff Goldman has lived. Everything from launching a hit bakery to starring in a reality show to -- apparently -- running from dogs in a train yard. He recently shared wisdom that these life lessons have taught him with Forbes. Highlights include: 1. Remember the Dog Days : When I was 14, I broke into train yards. When you're 14 and you break into a train yard, it helps you learn to deal with fear. There were dogs and cops. It was tough. But even now, think about those days.

"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.

There is only one official cake for President Obama's inaugural ball and it's coming from Baltimore's own Charm City Cakes.

We're not going to tell anyone how to run their households, but if anyone ever has Duff Goldman over, here's a hint on what not to pour: Sunny-D. Baltimore's Ace of Cakes really, really, really seems to hate the orange-flavored drink. Like really. It started seemingly out of nowhere on Twitter. Duff posed a question that was absolutely more of a statement: What is Sunny-D? He didn't mean what is it. That he knew. He meant, what the heck is in it? Whath followed was a series of Tweets, waxing disgusted (and rather creative)

Duff Goldman has just baked a cake of Baltimore's Washington Monument in Mount Vernon. And it looks just like the city's most famous landmark — right up to the statue of the nation's first president that stands atop its tower and down to the fine black piping that mimics the wrought-iron fence at its base. Only with Goldman, it's never enough, is it? Just two hours before he's supposed to deliver the cake and emcee the annual holiday monument-lighting ceremony alongside Gov. Martin O'Malley, the rock 'n' roll chef decides that what the cake really needs are fireworks inside its tower — real fireworks that explode and keep on exploding out of the cake for several minutes.

Last year, Baltimore's "Ace Of Cakes" star Duff Goldman added more layers to his rising confectionary empire, founding Charm City Cakes West and Duff's Cake Mix in Los Angeles. Strategically centered near the world's most prominent movie and television studios and the city's swankiest neighborhoods, Goldman caters to L.A. 's famously extravagant (and often half-baked) personalities, who relentlessly challenge him to take his cakes to the next tier. And when the Food Network's baking alchemist is not commuting coast to coast, he serves as a culinary ambassador for the American Chef Corps, a government initiative assembled to trade culinary techniques with chefs around the world.

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.
