‘Ace of Cakes’ Star Promises Cake for Oregon Couple After Local Baker Refused

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.
