Expert Advice: Ace of Cakes Duff Goldman
Continued (page 2 of 2)
What is it like creating cakes for celebrity movie premieres and other big events and how have famous people reacted to your designs?
I have been so unbelievably honored! We've done cakes for the premieres of Harry Potter, Kung Fu Panda, Hairspray and the Broadway premiere of Cry-Baby. What really thrills me is that these folks want me! Meeting Jack Black was definitely a personal highlight for me. He was gracious and hilarious and exactly like I'd hoped he would be. Having Daniel Radcliffe tell me our Hogwarts cake was spot on was pretty much the best compliment I've ever been given. I was totally star-struck and giggling when I met him.
Have you ever had a crazy fan moment?
Oh boy, yes. We have people outside our building all the time taking pictures. It's really bizarre and hard for us to understand, because to us, we're just normal people. We've had people holding up signs and even peeking through our mail slot! That's just hard to get that kind of fandom. I appreciate it, don't get me wrong, but it's really surprising. We try to put it into perspective by thinking that if our favorite TV show was filming up the block, wouldn't we want to go see it? But it's still hard to wrap my head around.
