Duff Goldman Offers Spurned Lesbian Couple Free Wedding Cake
An Oregon baker told the couple he wouldn’t make a cake for their wedding so the former Ace of Cakes star volunteered.
After the owner of Sweet Cakes in Gresham, Ore. told a lesbian couple he wouldn’t make their wedding cake because he opposes same-sex marriage, Charm City Cakes owner Duff Goldman said he do it free, according to Today.
After the owner denied the couple, Goldman, founder of Remington’s Charm City Cakes and former star of the Food Network’s "Ace of Cakes," decided he would step in.
"You see stories, you hear stories and you always try to (think), 'Well, what can I do?' … I saw this story and thought, 'Wait! I can do something. There's injustice involving a cake. I can fix this!'" Goldman told Today.
Charm City Cakes has supplied desserts for same-sex nuptials even before Maryland voters legalized them in November.
Mary Alice Yetskey, the shops marketing director, told the Baltimore Business Journal last year that the business was a supporter of same-sex marriages.
"We’ve been in favor of marriage equality for a long time," Yetskey told the newspaper. "And we’ve done plenty of cakes for same-sex weddings."
