Duff's CakeMix in Los Angeles

Duff's CakeMix in Los Angeles

I don't know about you, but I was a total Ace of Cakes fan back in the day when the show was on. I loved how real and quirky everyone was...not what you'd typically imagine of cake decorators. So, when I heard that Duff Goldman had opened a new shop in LA, called Duff's CakeMix—where you can decorate your own cake—I was there in a heartbeat. And this time, I had to bring Bonnie's daughter, Venise, because what 8-year-old wouldn't love this {you might remember Venise from our Sprinkles ATM adventure}. When you walk into CakeMix, it feels like a open air workshop with tables and stations all set up for decorating either cupcakes or a cake.

Venise wanted to decorate 4 cupcakes, while I opted for a mini cake. You can choose your cake flavor, filling flavor, icing colors, and even create your own colors of fondant with food coloring. I was in a blue/green mood that day...

Duff was hanging out in the shop that day {just days after getting into a car accident!} and gave Venise a little demo on how to airbrush a cupcake. He was so nice and genuine and a total normal dude. I loved that. I even tried to talk to him about his broken toes with my minimal knowledge of medicine that I think I know more about than I actually do.

...and a couple hours later...we were done! It was the most crafty I've gotten in a long time, and it was so, so fun. I loved being around a ton of kids and playful adults, and it made me look forward to the days when Ruby is old enough to enjoy something like this. After we left, Venise said she wanted to come back every day to decorate cakes. I'm pretty sure that's a sign of a successful day... — Joy
