"Bake 'n Cake Tattooed Across the Knuckles of His Hands..."
Tuesday, January 30, 2007 | posted by Mike

Usually, I only give the Food Network Newsletter e-mail a passing glance. It's typically chock full of advertisements for Rachael Ray's knife set, links to recipes I'll never get around to making and promos for upcoming shows that I already know about. Today, however, I did notice that there is a new sweepstakes run by the Network in conjunction with Jane magazine that looks like it will be a lot of fun for the winner.

If you are the lucky lady who is selected (not sure if that "lady" part is a requirement or an indication of Jane's demographics), you'll have a chance to hang with Duff Goldman and his crew and recount your story to the readers of the magazine.

You could spend a week at Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, home to Food Network's hit show Ace of Cakes, where you'll learn all about what it takes to create extreme cakes.

Then, you'll tell the world about your time with baker/owner Duff Goldman and the gang when you write about it in the pages of Jane!

The entry page, which is on the Jane website (and offers you 60% off the newsstand price if you subscribe!), features an image of some of the staff from Charm City Cakes and a close-up of Duff with "bake" and "cake" tattooed across his knuckles, a depiction which, in my opinion, is about one or two more uses away from officially becoming cliche.

I do get the tattoo joke, though it's already been done by The Blues Brothers. Of course, really, it has to be done as a joke, because nobody is as big a badass as Robert Mitchum.

Oh...and a big TVFF.com pat-on-the-back to the first commenter who identifies the band and song referenced in the title of this post!
