After being denied their wedding cake order by an Oregon bakery, a lesbian couple was offered their dream wedding cake FREE of charge by Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman. The Food Network show star told ABCNews.com, “I said, ‘Hey I can fix this problem. Somebody was a jerk to them and I can bake them a cake. That’s what I can do.’”
Even though the bakery in Gresham, Oregon denied the order, owner of Sweet Cakes Aaron Klein told KATU-TV that he didn’t mean to cause any pain to the couple. He refused simply because he personally doesn’t agree with same sex marriages due to religious reasons.
“I honestly did not mean to hurt anybody, didn’t mean to make anybody upset, [it’s] just something I believe in very strongly,” he said.
On January 28th a complaint was filed by one of the women and the Oregon Department of Justice is in fact looking into this allegation of possible discrimination.
It is not sure when the couple have decided to tie the knot, but Duff has promised that he will personally deliver the big wedding cake to the brides-to-be in Oregon!
“I want to give them a big hug and say congratulations,” he said. “It involves cake, it involves love, marriage, all things I’m a big fan of.”
How cool is that?!
