"Ace of Cakes" fans who are disappointed about the TV reality show's cancellation can take heart in knowing that star baker Duff Goldman is expanding a recently launched line of baking and decorating products. Just days after the Food Network confirmed it had canceled the show, which followed the exploits of the Charm City Cakes owner and his staff, specialty retailer Party City announced it would sell the Duff Goldman Collection. Goldman, whose bakery is in Remington, launched the line in June at Michaels craft stores, selling mixes, spatulas, pans, edible cake graffiti spray and fondant in nine colors.

I'm trying to be as much of a do-it-yourself-er as I can for the wedding. With that, I've ventured into every craft store known to man. And who knew there were so many out there. I guess I just didn't pay attention to them all until I needed to. If you're considering doing some projects on your own, whether for your wedding or your home, or even gifts for holidays and birthdays, take a look at my personal reviews of the area's most popular craft stores. Michaels: This is probably the most common and well known craft store and for good reason.

Debbie Barnes only meant to pick up toothpicks yesterday when she popped by Party City on York Road. But she got no farther than the fog machine, tucked in among animated skeletons and bins of party-size candy bags, and had to stop. Barnes, 50, plans to greet children in her Rodgers Forge neighborhood on Halloween with a home done up in spider webs and spooky music. "We have many, many, many little kids that come," Barnes said. But aside from the children, "I would do it for me." More people like Barnes are going all out in decorating their homes for the season, helping to fuel what has become a $3.12 billion Halloween industry.

With Halloween begins the mean season for women. Worse even than the three months of summer and bathing suits.Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. Three months of unfulfilled expectations -- yours and those everyone has of you.A time when you are required to change decorations more frequently than you change sheets. A time of family rituals you can't quite get off the ground.First comes Halloween, to test your skills with a sewing machine and a glue gun. Then Thanksgiving, when someone says, "Oh, is this Cool Whip?"

As if the Inner Harbor East hotel project hadn't seen enough strange happenings already, there was a sight yesterday that bordered on the surreal. Near the base of the half-finished 32-story hotel was a large tent made of transparent plastic. Inside, amid flowers, ferns and tuxedo-clad waiters, a crowd of Baltimore's leading political and economic figures munched on curried couscous salad and chocolate-covered strawberries. Baking executive John Paterakis Sr., the main force behind the hotel, was there, as were Baltimore Development Corp.

She stands on street corners in a black robe portraying the notorious image from Abu Ghraib and has been arrested so many times for nonviolent protests that she has lost count, but Maria Allwine does not easily give in -- even when her goal seems impossible. After years of protesting the Iraq war, rallying against corporate interests and assailing what she says is a corrupt city government, Allwine is attempting a different approach to effect change. She is running for City Council president in Tuesday's general election as a Green Party candidate.

If past elections are any indication, thousands of voters will turn out for the general election Tuesday to cast a ballot for whichever Democrat appears on the screen, burying candidates from the other parties under the reality of how politics work in Baltimore. But Elbert R. Henderson, the Republican candidate for mayor, would like voters to know that, technically, they have another option, even if practically few of them exercise it. Henderson, 57, an official in the Washington, D.C., corrections department, is making a second run for mayor, hoping to unseat Democrat Sheila Dixon.

With voices raised against corporate welfare and one-party rule, the Baltimore Green Party held its first convention in the city yesterday, attracting about 100 people to a library basement to nominate eight candidates for City Council. "The members of the City Council of Baltimore City ... should be on the streets of Washington demanding our money back, and demanding that the billions of dollars of federal money that go ... into the black hole of military spending be used instead for the health, education, transportation and general welfare of our citizens," said Dr. Terrence T. Fitzgerald, a physician nominated to run for the council's 5th District in Northwest Baltimore.

IT SEEMS SILLY to have to say this. But because the last time a Republican served in the City Council was more than 50 years ago, many Baltimoreans actually believe that a Democrat cannot vote for a GOP candidate. This, of course, is not true. In the Nov. 7 election, any registered city voter can pull the lever for whomever appears on the ballot, regardless of the candidate's or the voter's own party affiliation.The election of a Republican to the City Council next month would be quite an upset.

ANNAPOLIS CITY leaders, who whined about footing the bill for a New Year's Eve celebration expenses, apparently aren't so tight with a buck when it comes to a potentially costly day in court.The city was ready to let Annapolis First Night proceed without its participation and on city-owned properties because it didn't want to absorb the cost of police overtime and cleanup. Fortunately, Annapolis-based USinternetworking Inc. bailed out the city by agreeing to kick in $18,000 for the annual celebration.
