What happens when a network decides to mash up Cupcake Wars with the after-hours cooking competition Midnight Feast? Pastry chef/TV foodperson Duff Goldman (owner of the Baltimore bakery Charm City Cakes and star of Ace of Cakes) will host Food Network's new "underground cake competition" punnily named Duff Till Dawn. According to a press release, each episode will pit two cake-decorating teams against each other in an overnight competition to create an "over-the-top" cake. And not content to bring just one Duff to its television lineup, actress Haylie Duff will serve as one of the rotating judges; musician Kelis, director Kevin Smith, and several Food Network hosts round out the judging panel. Duff Till Dawn will premiere Thursday, January 29 on Food Network.
