I told the ladies in my Bible study, so I might as well tell the world—I’ve got a mad crush on Geof Manthorne. There’s something enticing about Geof’s calm and gentle spirit in the face of the insanity that is the reality cake decorating show “Ace of Cakes.” The show follows a group of eclectic cake makers from Charm City Cakes in Baltimore.
Owned by the one and only Duff Goldman, who doesn’t seem to think it’s a real cake unless it contains fireworks, the cast of characters are as brilliant as their amazing cake creations. Besides Geof and Duff, there’s also Mary Alice who keeps things running up front and acts as the show’s unofficial narrator. Sometimes I think Mary Alice is the only one who knows what’s going on.
While Duff is highly amusing, he’s like a hyped up middle school boy who really wants to see things explode. Then there’s Geof, Duff’s right hand man, who is the voice of reason. When Duff gets wildly out of control, Geof can restore order. Quiet, unassuming, and pretty dang witty, Geof is so cool he doesn’t even know how cool he is. Don’t you just love guys like that?
Plus, his talents don’t end there. He knows how to build things and use power tools–two skills which will get him far in life. I mean, you have to be secure in your manhood to be Geof the Cake Guy. And rumor has it, that Geof also knows how to tickle a six string (OK, it’s true! I found video! And I like his song! He so needs to “Take 5” with BSW). A guy who can bake and play guitar—does it get any better than that, girls? I think not.
Geof Manthorne, you can ice my cake any day! I’m thinking maybe a Devil’s Food with some lightly whipped vanilla frosting.
Note to reader: Sorry for any “suggestive comments” that may have been inferred. I actually am that stupid that I can make a sexual innuendo and not “get it.” It’s been fixed, so no worries!

I LOVE Geof Manthorne, and I’m glad I’m not the only one. The very first time I watched Ace of Cakes his faced appeared on the screen and i have been hooked ever since! He is the main reason I watch-and record-the show. They just don’t makes guys like that anymore, and if they do, I have had a heck of a time trying to find one!
