Anyone who watches Duff Takes the Cake — and has seen Ace of Cakes or Buddy vs. Duff — knows Duff Goldman is a funny, goofy dude. Yes, he’s all about the cakes and can create just about anything from flour and sugar (and all the other necessary ingredients), but it’s his colourful personality that really makes him something to behold.

Now, if you think he’s only like that on television, then you don’t follow him on social media. And if you don’t, then why aren’t you? Whether it’s Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or all of the above, here’s proof that the charm (Goldman’s studio isn’t called Charm City Cakes for nothing!) we see from Duff on TV isn’t far off from real life. In fact, based on these tweets, perhaps what we see on the small screen is just a taste of the real Duff.

Our minds don’t even want to go in the vicinity of a place this desolate.

If Duff is implying that he will send cakes north of the border, then excuse us while we email our orders in.

He’s a big dude who makes big cakes but little staircases can be a challenge.

Hmm, perhaps Duff needs to address Geof this way from now on.

Oh, Mrs. Goldman. We’re with Duff.

Huh. Goldman might be the best baker around but sometimes it’s the simpler things in the life that make for the yummiest things.

Duff might not be a dad yet but this might be the daddiest joke ever.

The biggest pizza debate and Duff has taken sides …

… though even he has his limits.

Duff may be self-deprecating but he won’t tolerate being made fun of.

Hmm, guess Duff isn’t as close with this pal, Carl Ruiz, as he thought.

Apparently bull riders are wild in more ways than one.

It’s a team effort. To 17 more years! And another 17 on top of that. And another … well, you catch our drift.

Tune in to Duff Takes the Cake on Sundays at 9 and 9:30 PM E/P.
