Famed cake "ace" Duff Goldman leaves his bakery behind and takes a sweet road trip on a mission to find the best desserts in America, from Baked Alaska to Boston cream pie. Duff goes to the locals of each city to find out where they eat when they've got a sugar craving and then meets the people behind the nation's best desserts, getting the lowdown on the history of the recipe and the magic of making it behind-the-scenes. Whether he's mixing an egg cream in Chicago orbuilding the best hot fudge sundae in Dallas, Duffbrings his unbridled enthusiasm with each new sugar-filled, chocolate-covered bite.

Duff revisits his European heritage with a slice of Apple Strudel, done the old-world way, at the legendary Berghoff Restaurant. He rides across town to Hoosier Mama Pies to try a dessert that's fit for The King. And when he is just about sugared out, Duff makes a savory pit stop to try the radical Motherloaf Cupcake.
