UPDATE: "Ace of Cakes" meets Pavement, Stephen Malkmus

In an unprecedented collision of the worlds of baking, reality TV and Stephen Malkmus, Pavement will appear on an upcoming episode of "Ace of Cakes."

It's not clear how this happened. Perhaps this is the show Malkmus chooses to pig out to those nights after a bad show. 

Or maybe Duff  Goldman is just a big fan.

But the show taped the episode in September in New York.

The Chicago Reader, which has been following the band on tour, blogged about it Wednesday in a post reminiscing about the band's recent string of shows. Pitchfork got the confirmation from the band's label.

Those who want to know when the show will air, or if Goldman made an edible statue of Stephen Malkmus, as no doubt obsessed fans would like, will have to wait. I will update when I get word from Charm City Cakes.

The idolized 90s band reunited earlier this year for their first world tour in 11 years. In September, it performed at Virgin Mobile FreeFest right after Matt & Kim. 

Update:  Charm City Cakes manager Mary Alice Yeskey confirmed the Pavement episode will air January 20. She said the cake was inspired by the artwork of one of the band's albums, but wouldn't say which one. Guesses?

Update 2: "Ace of Cakes" has been canceled, but the new season, including the Pavement episode will still air in its entirety.

My guess would have to be Wowee Zowee. It has light blues and whites...good icing colors.

Crooked Rain would be pretty cool.
