Thanks to Duff Goldman, now you can have your cake and decorate it, too. The Ace of Cakes star opened Cakemix in Los Angeles this past Thursday as a cake-frosting haven where “for the cost of movie tickets and popcorn and a soda,” families can instead do something much cooler and bond while decorating a cake, Goldman told the AP.
It’s just $18 for 4 cupcakes or $36 for a whole cake—a price that’s probably well worth it for non-bakers who get to experience decorating a cake without any of the kitchen-prep hassle. Customers choose from chocolate, vanilla, marble, carrot, red velvet, or a daily special cake flavor, and the cakes come pre-baked and ready to be adorned with fondant, airbrushed designed, and “cake tattoos.” Guests can be as involved or as hands-off as they want, with employees on-call to frost customers’ cakes if they so desire.
Cakemix is located right next door to Goldman’s bakery, Charm City Cakes West, and also offers cake and coffee to satisfy the inevitable sweet tooth triggered by the sugar-crazy spot. It’s even got a catering truck and sells pre-decorated cakes, as well as to-go kits with all the tools necessary for at-home baking.
The spot—a dream venue for bridal showers, bachelorette parties, and groups of kids and teens—will later expand to two dozen stores nationwide, and even to a store in Tokyo. For Build-A-Bear and paint-your-own-pottery places, competition never tasted so sweet.
