On the Food Network show “Ace of Cakes”, the crew of punk rock bakers at Baltimore’s Charm City Cakes construct huge, elaborate cake replicas of all sorts of things: Yankee Stadium, a video game goblin, a Chinese food container. And on a forthcoming episode, they’ve got something in store for reunited indie kings Pavement, a band that probably gets a lot of play around the Charm City Cakes studio (though probably not as much play as Clutch).
Chicago musician and engineer Jeremy Lemos joined Pavement on their reunion tour and is keeping a diary of it for the Chicago Reader. In the latest entry, Lemos writes that the “Ace of Cakes” crew was on hand in New York for Pavement’s triumphant run of Central Park shows, and that they made Pavement a cake. There’s even a photo of Stephen Malkmus with the Charm City Cakes mob, complete with cameras everywhere. We unfortunately don’t get to see what Pavement’s cake looks like, but there’s at least an outside chance that it’s a massive edible Malkmus statue.
Matador confirmed that Pavement will appear on a forthcoming episode of the show. It’s not scheduled yet, so DVR season pass is your friend.
In further Pavement news from today, you can watch the band’s entire set at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival online right now.
