Turns out UMBC alumnus-turned-celebrity-chef Jeffrey “Duff” Goldman ’97, history, is not just a stellar cake baker, but also an auto enthusiast. In an interview with MotorTrend.com, the “Ace of Cakes” star talks about his lifelong love for all things car.
As he tells Motor Trend reporters:
“I am a freakish gearhead,” he says, sitting at a table in Cakemix, which allows people to decorate their own cakes and cupcakes. “I will take your car apart and put it back together. I can totally do that.”
Goldman, who most recently created a six-tier cake for President Obama’s inauguration, was named an Outstanding Alumnus of the Year by UMBC in 2009.
