Yuri's Night to be Featured on Ace of Cakes

Washington, DC, April 02, 2009 --(PR.com)-- In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the NASA Goddard Space Center, Duff Goldman and his staff at Charm City Cakes are baking a Hubble Space Telescope-themed cake for Yuri's Night DC at Goddard, one of four Yuri's Night events being held in the metro Washington, DC area.

The Baltimore-based Charm City Cakes is the focus of Food Network's hit show Ace of Cakes, which will be filming the 2.5-foot tall cake's arrival at the YNDC event for broadcast in a future episode. No specific airing dates have been released. Ace of Cakes, now in its sixth season, has featured CCC-created cakes for the Super Bowl, the Preakness Stakes, the premiere of the movie Kung Fu Panda, and many other events and occasions.

"We're extremely excited that Ace of Cakes and NASA Goddard are helping bring space to an exciting new medium," said Loretta Hidalgo Whitesides, the Executive Director for Yuri's Night and a planned YN Goddard attendee. "People love space, and they love having the opportunity to get creative, so this cake is definitely an embodiment of the spirit of Yuri's Night."

Yuri's Night NASA Goddard will take place this Saturday, April 4th, at the Goddard Visitors Center in Greenbelt, MD. Starting at 8 PM and running until 1 AM, YN Goddard will feature DJing and music by DJ Scientific and Middle Distance Runner. A demonstration of Goddard's famous Science on a Sphere, "Are You Smarter Than A Rocket Scientist", and other thematic activities round out the evening's agenda. Admission is $10 in advance and $20 at the door. Beer, wine, and other refreshments will be served, so 21 and up only. For more information, visit http://dc.yurisnight.net/.
