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!

Still can’t believe its finished on TV after 41 years. That one hour seems very odd now! These are lovely pictures and i am hoping that most (including Susan) will return!

Really?????? I am so tired of Susan Luce Susan Luce Susan Luce. Yes, her body and face have got it all for the age she is, but the last few shows of her looking up to the sky at Hollywood and Vine with the wonderment and amazement of a new fresh young actress was almost too much to bear. I understand soaps are fantasy but sometimes you just need to reel in these writers and ask them if this is a ‘serious moment” or a laughable one. And then the Rhett Butler act at the end just took me over the edge.

It was one of the most memorable moments in my “daytime” life. Making the cake for All My Children was an honor. Also, back in the day i was an under-five when AMC was in NYC. I delivered a pizza to Jesse and Jenny when they were hanging out in NYC at Mrs. Gonzalez’s

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
