Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman is standing up for the Oregon lesbian couple, who found themselves in a predicament last week after a local baker refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.

The Baltimore-based star promised the couple he would not only make their cake, but also to drive it out to Portland free of charge.

Duffman told the Huffington Post:

“For a cake decorator to really feel like he needed to take a stand and say, 'You’re not getting married. Or I’m not providing the sweet enjoyment for your wedding.' It just makes absolutely no sense.”

 It’s not the first time a same-sex couple has experienced discrimination from a local business, but the number fair-minded Americans standing on the right side of history continues to grow.
