I'm a big fan of the show "Ace of Cakes" on Food Network here in America. I also found out that Duff Goldman, the star of the show and owner of Charm City Cakes bakery likes LEGO a lot. :thumbup:

Because I like the show so much I contacted them and offered to make them a mosaic of their logo.

I also made a Miniland scale version of Duff Goldman

After I sent it to them, they emailed me and said that they really liked it and would put it "in a place of honor."   :sweet:  

Then when I was watching the show last week I saw my model in the background by the front door!  I was pretty excited to see it there.  I contacted them again and asked if I could mention it on my blog.  

They said "of course!"

Looks nice  :classic:

Now that you feel it, you don't
You've gone off the rails

What a great story! :sweet:

I always kind of enjoyed that show as well, and you did a lovely job with that mosaic. I bet it was pretty cool to sort of "see yourself" on T.V.

A nice and, ahem, very sweet work indeed. But it made me hungry...  :tongue:  :thumbup:
How did you do that very fine thunderbolt?

Thanks Asuka.

After several attempts at a LEGO version, I decided to make a vinyl sticker for the thunderbolt part.  It just didn't work out any other way (at least not at that size).
