If you're a food junkie and often find yourself checking out the Food Network as you're channel surfing, then you've probably seen a show called Ace of Cakes. Duff Goldman is the Baker/Owner of Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, Maryland, and he and his Team create some of the most amazing cakes I've seen.
So, what does Duff have to do with Southwest Airlines? Well, back in May when we were planning our Spirit Party at Camden Yards in Baltimore, one of our Customer Service Agents, Lisa, thought it would be cool to see if Duff and Team could reproduce our unique MarylandOne plane with batter and icing. To make a long story short, Duff and his Team came through with 'flying' colors (red, white, yellow, and black, to be exact).
The true "icing on the cake" was that Duff himself delivered the cake to the party! The Ace of Cakes film crew was on hand to interview our very own Marilee McInnis, and the big reveal aired last Thursday. The episode is titled, "Wishes Granted" and also has another great story about how Duff and his Team made a little girl's Make-a-Wish Foundation dream come true by inviting her to join them in the bakery.
If you missed the show last week, check out the Food Network's website for additional air times.
