As many watched the final episode on network television of All My Children, this past Friday, a few weeks earlier the cast taped their last scenes. After the curtain came down, the cast gathered for some very emotional moments with AMC creator, Agnes Nixon who read her famous AMC signature lines, sang a song befitting of the moment, and toasted with the cast for a job well-done for 41 years of outstanding drama.
Surrounded by the likes of Susan Lucci (Erica) and David Canary (Adam/Stuart), Nixon was front and center and given her due by the final cast of the show, and some of the returning veterans. In addition, a one of a kind cake was brought out that had the cast in sheer awe! Richard Ruskell, the pastry chef from the Montage in Beverly Hills, California, and the winner from a past season of Last Cake Standing donated the historic cake. A big fan of the show, Ruskell had been working on it for over a month. It was a true work of art.
After the jump, view some final images from the cast gathering on the final day of taping as they said their goodbyes, and celebrated their achievements!
