Ace of Cakes Won't Be Your Friend if You Mess Up the Vote

Locally produced Ace of Cakes is starting to film its sixth season. The show airs weekly on The Food Network.

Production and other business obligations keep the crew of this bad boy very very busy. So busy in fact, I don't know when owner and star Duff Goldman finds enough time to churn out his confectionery creations. Or as they're otherwise known in the biz -- vanity cakes.

So, when Duff and the gang aren't busy making cakes or filming reality TV, how do they keep busy? By getting out the vote, silly. Even scary bakers with blue colander hats and cake knife pitchforks think participation in the right to vote is a matter of vital importance.

Not. So very not.
