Ace of Cakes

Fantastic culinary shows you can watch.

With DStv Delicious creeping up on us slowly, we need some tantalising shows to keep us warm this winter with mouth-watering recipes and great kitchen hacks.

So while you wait for 8 and 9 October to roll by and the DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival at Kyalami to sweep you off your feet, be sure to catch these shows from the comfort of your home (or anytime and anywhere with DStv Now).

Life’s too short to eat cake last, and that’s why Ace of Cakes is the front-runner to our list. Airing Thursdays at 20:00 on Food Network (175), delve into the world of fantastic cake creations with Duff Goldman and the team at Charm City Cakes. Just how big, and how preposterous can a cake really be, right?
