Duff Goldman, the no-longer-televised Ace of Cakes, has been tapped to make Barack Obama’s inauguration ball cake, and one thing’s for sure: this is going to be the best cake ever made for a presidential inauguration, ever.
According to the Huffington Post, the cake, which will appear at the Commander-in-Chief’s Ball tomorrow evening and will likely be consumed by Barack and Michelle Obama themselves, “will stand 3 to 4 feet tall, drip with patriotic fondant bunting and sparkle with clusters of stars shooting out like fireworks.”
“Glitter is going to be all over the place,” Goldman told them in a telephone interview. As of press, his magical bakers at Charm City Cakes are baking the cake itself, as well as other cakes appearing at various inaugural events. But only one will be at an inaugural ball. We repeat: the best cake ever.
Do you doubt us? In order for you to understand how awesome it’s going to be, let’s go through Goldman’s cake repertoire, courtesy of the Food Network, and imagine that these cakes are patriotic, American, and seasoned with eagle tears, instead of whatever the theme of that cake is supposed to be.
How happy is your face right now, America?
