Chef Duff Goldman of the Food Network show “Ace of Cakes” delivered a special treat on Tuesday to celebrate the Boston Pops' 125th anniversary, then helped close the night by leading the orchestra in "The Stars and Stripes Forever." From this clip supplied by the Pops, it appears Goldman is more comfortable slinging fondant than a baton. He got some help in Boston audience management from conductor Keith Lockhart, who somehow procured a Red Sox cap to replace Goldman's top hat.

The night's show featured trumpeter Doc Severinsen, piano virtuoso Michael Chertock, and Broadway star Idina Menzel, best known for her work in "Wicked," “Rent,” and most recently on the small screen in “Glee!”
