DIY Cake Decorating- Other Bakery Goods

Allie Mac Kay was live from Duff’s Cakemix in West Hollywood where kids can decorate their cakes and cupcakes.


Duff’s Cakemix is the first interactive design bakery where the customer is the artist and the chef has requested that you play with your food. Created by celebrity chef and television personality, Duff Goldman, Cakemix serves up the Ace of Cakes star’s delectable treats.  After customers select their desired cake size, or if they prefer, cupcakes to decorate, they are provided with a choice of specially crafted flavors. Each customer has the opportunity to assemble their own cake decorating “kit,” including a choice of frosting type – buttercream or fondant – frosting color, scoops of candy toppings from the goodie-bar, as well as tattoos, stencils, and air brushing. Cakemix customers can also roll out extra fondant to make their own decoration elements like flowers, shapes, animals, and more all with the help of Duff’s talented team.

Located on Melrose Avenue next door to Goldman’s custom bakery, Charm City Cakes West, Cakemix also includes a café where customers can enjoy an espresso, cappuccino, all made with Duff’s signature Intelligentsia Roast Coffee. The bakery offers an array of pastries, including Dinkies (Duff’s version of Twinkies $5), Cake in a Jar ($5) Message Cupcakes ($49 for dozen), and Mini Cupcakes ($20 for dozen), along with already decorated cakes, ($32-$48), signature cupcakes ($3.50), and cake slices ($5.50). Duff’s Cakemix also offers gluten-free and vegan cakes and cupcakes.
