Mixed Reviews for Ace of Cakes' Sled Hockey Debut

The Disabled Hockey Festival was honored to have a cake personally designed, produced, and delivered by the Ace of Cakes himself, Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, Md.  Everyone in attendance got a sneak preview of the cake, and I even took photos, but I can't share them here because the cake will be unveiled to the public in a future episode of the "Ace of Cakes" on the Food Network.

Before he presented the cake at the opening ceremonies Friday night, Duff tried his hand (or, I should say, his arms) at sled hockey. Now, sled hockey is not easy for anyone, but Duff put his reputation -- and his body -- on the line by takng the ice with some of the world best players, including many who just won the gold medal at the Paralympics in Vancouver. He fell down a few times, nearly scored a goal, needed a push from the referee occasionally, and got in a fight with the opposing goalie -- but overall it was an impressive debut. And one that will make for great TV, so don't miss this episode.
