Jeffrey Adam “Duff” Goldman (born December 17, 1974) is a pastry chef and television personality.
He is the executive chef of the Baltimore-based Charm City Cakes shop which was featured in the Food Network reality television show Ace of Cakes, and his second Los Angeles-based shop Charm City Cakes West, which is featured in Food Network’s Duff Till Dawn and “Cake Masters” series. His work has also been featured on the Food Network Challenge, Iron Chef America, Oprah, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Man v. Food.
Goldman is born in Detroit, Michigan. He moved shortly thereafter to Missouri. Goldman’s nickname Duff came about when he was a baby.
His toddler brother, Willie Goldman, was unable to pronounce the name and kept saying Duffy.
When he was four, his mother caught him in her kitchen wielding a meat cleaver and watching food personality Chef Tell.
After the divorce of his parents when he was ten, Goldman spent time living in both Northern Virginia and in the town of Sandwich on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
In 1992, Goldman attended McLean High School in McLean, Virginia where he played on the Highlanders ice hockey team. In 1993, he graduated from Sandwich High School in Sandwich.
From the age of fourteen, he began to work in kitchens; his first job was at a bagel store at a mall.
Goldman has said that when he was a sophomore in college, he went to what he considered the finest restaurant in Baltimore, Charleston, and was inspired to apply as a cook there. The head chef, Cindy Wolf, looked at his résumé and noted that it consisted of irrelevant experience. However, Cindy did offer him a job to make cornbread and biscuits only, and this is what Goldman cites as the turning point in his career.
Shortly after college at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, he attended schools such as Corcoran College of Art and the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in Napa Valley, California. After working under acclaimed chefs in California, including a stagiaire position at the French Laundry
and as executive pastry chef of the Vail Cascade Hotel in Colorado, he returned to Washington, D.C., to work at Todd English’s Olives restaurant baking bread.
Charm City Cakes
In 2000, Goldman opened his own business called Charm City Cakes. Initially, his cake sales began as he worked out of his house in Charles Village in Baltimore, Maryland with the help of two assistants he employed. As the requests for his unusual cakes increased, he hired more employees – many of whom did not have any culinary experience as pastry chefs, but were instead experienced painters, architects, and sculptors. Charm City Cakes frequently uses blow torches, as well as power tools such as grinders and drills to help create the underlying supports of cakes. With his crew, Goldman has created unusual cakes including the likenesses of Elvis in the form of a 3-foot butter cream sculpture, an anatomically correct ear, a smoking volcano, a three-dimensional German Shepherd, as well as a replica of a CAT scan machine, a Jeep, and an edible Wrigley Field.
Goldman has made cakes for a number of celebrities including a cake for President Obama’s second inaugural ball in 2013, Tom Clancy, the cast of Lost, the 30 Rock cast (along with a cake prop), Sir Roger Moore,. and for Katy Perry’s “Birthday” video.
In October 2009, Goldman and his brother Willie released the book Ace of Cakes: Inside the World of Charm City Cakes from HarperCollins/William Morrow, providing an exhaustive look at both the bakery and the show.

The successful challenge : Improvisation following a request from a fan
Adrian James “A.J.” Croce (born September 28, 1971 in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania) is an American singer-songwriter. He is the son of singer-songwriters Jim Croce and Ingrid Croce.
Shortly before his father’s death in a 1973 plane crash, Croce’s family moved west to San Diego, California, where he was raised by his mother, Ingrid Croce.
At the age of four Croce was completely blinded as the result of serious physical abuse by his mother’s boyfriend. Between the ages of four and ten, Croce gradually regained vision in his left eye. It was during this difficult time in Croce’s life that he began to play the piano. “I learned to play music by listening and playing along to the radio and to records…” Croce says, “At some point I was given the music of Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder as inspiration, which it was, and has been ever since.”
Croce’s first paying gig was at the age of 12, when he was paid $20 to perform at a Bar Mitzvah party. By the age of 16, Croce was performing regularly at San Diego nightclubs as a sideman and band leader. Croce reflected, “I was into every kind of music… you might say I was unfocused, but I consider an eclectic taste in music to be the foundation of versatility.” His house burned down when he was age 15.
Croce and his wife Marlo have two children, daughter Camille and son Elijah.
Ron Goldstein and Peter Bauman of Private Music signed Croce to his first recording contract at age 19.
He recorded two albums for Private Music: his self-titled debut, A. J. Croce, produced by T-Bone Burnett and John Simon, and That’s Me in the Bar, produced by Jim Keltner, and featuring artists such as Ry Cooder, David Hidalgo, and Keltner himself. Croce is also the owner/operator of his own record label, Seedling Records.
Croce’s third release, Fit to Serve, was recorded in Memphis, and produced by Jim Gaines, who had previously produced Van Morrison, Santana, and The Steve Miller Band. Croce then took a musical turn with the release of his album Transit. He explained, “I had been playing blues-based music for a long time, and I was ready to try something new.
“Transit was compared by critics to the work of John Lennon, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, and Van Morrison. Glen Starkey of New Times labeled Croce “a song crafter of the first order”.
Croce’s next three albums were self-produced. Adrian James Croce (Croce’s only pop-oriented album) was the only independently produced album of 2004 to chart in Top 40 charts in America. In Europe it was on the charts for six months, sitting in between songs by U2 and Coldplay. That same year Adrian James Croce won Best Pop album at the San Diego Music Awards.
His 2006 release Cantos on his own label Seedling Records notably features Ben Harper. In 2009, his album Cage of Muses was released on Seedling Records, garnering a 4-start review from Rolling Stone Magazine.
In 2013, Croce signed with Compass Records and has since released his latest album, Twelve Tales. Croce considers Twelve Tales to be his most ambitious recording project to date. He recorded two songs with each of six legendary producers in five U.S. cities throughout a year long period, at the same time releasing one song per month exclusively on iTunes in 2013.
The full album was released on CD and LP in 2014. The album’s producers are: the late ‘Cowboy’ Jack Clement, famous for his work with Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash; Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer Allen Toussaint, notable producer of classic New Orleans recordings by artists such as Dr. John and Irma Thomas; Golden Globe-nominated Mitchell Froom, whose work includes Randy Newman and Crowded House; Grammy winning engineer and producer Kevin Killen, who has produced multiple albums by Elvis Costello; Notable A&R executive and record producer Tony Berg whose sessions have included Bob Dylan and Fiona Apple; and Greg Cohen, avant-garde bass player and producer, known for his work with Tom Waits.
Croce co-wrote a few of the songs on Twelve Tales, including one song with legendary songwriter Leon Russell. Croce’s albums have charted on eight radio charts including AAA, Blues, College, Jazz, and Americana.
He has performed as an opening act for artists such as Carlos Santana, Rod Stewart, Aretha Franklin, Dr. John, Lyle Lovett, James Brown, B.B. King, Dave Matthews, Earth, Wind and Fire, Rod Stewart and Ray Charles. Croce has sat in with many notable artists live, including Willie Nelson, Ben Harper, Ry Cooder, the Neville Brothers, Waylon Jennings, and David Hidalgo (Los Lobos). He has also performed on national television, on shows including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Today Show, Good Morning America, MTV, CNN, and Austin City Limits.
In 2015 Croce’s performance on the show “Music City Roots” began airing nationwide on PBS, including in Los Angeles and Nashville. It will air on 85 stations across the country 2015. It was announced that later this year Compass Records will release a re-issue of Croce’s highly regarded sophomore album, “That’s Me In the Bar” for its 20th anniversary. All of Croce’s 2015 concerts will feature a set from that album.

gisel de Marco
Born in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina, Gisel’s destiny with music began at the tender age of just 7 years, when she received her first toy piano. Shortly thereafter, she started taking piano lessons and by the age of 10, she made her first home recorded album and named it “BlueBay”.
Gisel’s love for the arts continued as she participated in school plays, musicals, and dance. Through all her interests, she had no idea how strong her love for singing would be until one evening when she went to a Karaoke bar with her friends. She was extremely shy and nervous that evening, as Gisel’s friends convinced her to get up on the stage and sing a song. After gathering enough nerve to sing “Hero” by Mariah Carey…almost instantly, the crowd went quiet…as if they were hypnotized by this unknown local singer! Soon, they all began to applaud and cheer Gisel’s performance and it was at that moment, she realized that singing was the thing she was destined to do…it was the connection with the people in the Karaoke bar that evening that made her realize it was the most important moment of her life. At that moment, Gisel realized the first and greatest love in her life – singing for people!
She continued performing in plays and musicals while studying hip-hop and Persian dance, and modeling on the runway for the international store, Falabella, and the clothes designer, Solido Inc. At 18, Gisel composed and recorded her first demo and was soon invited to sing on several local television stations.
As Gisel’s journey with singing continued, she traveled to Buenos Aires to work with Laura Miller, Pimpinela, and Patricia Sosa producers. She also recorded with producer Fabian Gallardo and received proposals from the manager of Karina Mazzocco, Horacio Cabak, and Manuel Wirtz.
In 2003, after winning “The Bachelorette”, the Warner Channel flew Gisel to Jamaica, where she performed at the “Grande Sport Villa Golf Resort & Spa by Beaches.”
Soon after, she entered and won a singing and songwriting competition sponsored by “With you in Hollywood”, a Warner Channel production. Winning the contest afforded her the opportunity to travel to Hollywood in 2004, where she performed in the “City of Angels.”
In August 2004, Gisel joined a local Rock & Roll band known as “The Spanglish Band” as the lead female vocal singer. They performed in well-known clubs, restaurants, and events, such as Mei, Taura, Moore, SOHO and Costello. Concurrently, Gisel performed at the Hard Rock Café in Buenos Aires, as well as various events and restaurants in her home town of Rosario and neighboring communities.
In 2008, she performed in a key political event that was attended by more than 5,000 VIP persons, including, Nobel Prize laureate Mario Vargas Llosa, to whom she had the honor of singing “Happy Birthday” a capella. A large number of Ex-Presidents, such as Jose Maria Aznar (Spain), Alberto Lacalle (Uruguay), Vicente Fox (Mexico), and several other national politicians and experts such as Mauricio Rojas (Member of the Sweden Parliament) and Pedro Schwatz (Spanish Economist), among others, were in attendance.
Gisel’s ambitions didn’t stop in Argentina. On March 22, 2007, she joined SellaBand.com and was soon recognized as their most ambitious and unsigned South American Artist. She was intrigued by the friendships and bonds the artists on SellaBand forged with the people who “believed” in the artists through their purchases of “parts”. The opportunity of creating something together with believers was the driving force in what ultimately became the fastest “Final Countdown” in SellaBand history! Over the course of just a few days, Gisel de Marco raised approximately $14,000 to become the 25th artist to raise $50,000 on SellaBand.com. An amazing achievement for anyone. Gisel’s hard work paid off as her friends, fans, and believers launched her into the next chapter of her life…a recording deal for her debut album, “All The Way”, which released World-wide on August 1, 2010.
SellaBand was important in so many ways to Gisel de Marco…the site gave her World-wide exposure and demonstrated that she is a hit in countries around the world. Gisel expressed her gratitude by writing a song and dedicating it to her believers…it’s called, “I found you”. Since the release of her debut album, “All The Way”, she has been selling and shipping Limited Edition copies to people in countries throughout the world.
Gisel de Marco is living in Switzerland.
