Geof Manthorne, 'Ace of Cakes'

Geof Manthorne "Ace of Cakes," Food Network You know him as: The mellow second-in-command at Charm City Cakes. Why we like him: Because his laid-back (way back) style is a nice counterpoint to Duff Goldman's bigger-louder-more enthusiasm, and his succinct talking-head segments are wonders of comic timing. Where else you've seen him: If you live in Baltimore, you might see him walking his dog.Food Network. Text by Rick Porter.
