Ace of Cakes ending after 10 seasons

Food Network’s docudrama series Ace of Cakes will end following the conclusion of its 10th season, which debuts in January but has already been filmed.

Duff Goldman announced that on Charm City Cake’s blog, saying that “[a]bout three weeks ago, we completed filming and wished a tearful goodbye to our beloved crew from Authentic Entertainment (and threw a rager of a wrap party).” He added that because the series “has been in production for nearly five years … we think it’s time to catch our breath and explore some exciting new opportunities.”

Those opportunities may include other types of shows on Food Network; its GM and Next Food Network Star judge Bob Tuschman told The Hollywood Reporter that they’re developing other shows with Duff.
