'Ace of Cakes' Duff Goldman Jumps Into Marriage Equality Debate

Goldman has offered to bake a wedding cake for the lesbian couple turned away from an Oregon bakery

Looks like the lesbian couple who got turned away from an Oregon bakery might be getting something even better; Duff Goldman (otherwise known as the Ace of Cakes) has sent out an open offer to bake and transport their wedding cake, gratis.

The executive chef of Charm City Cakes in Baltimore saw the story online and tweeted, "@HuffPostFood: Bakery owner denies lesbian couple a cake http://t.co/tuwwSv9u" @Charm_CityCakes I'll make that cake for free. Fally?"

Goldman, who saw the story via HuffPo, told HuffPost Live, "I saw this story and I was like, 'Wait — I can do something, there’s injustice involving a cake!'"

The Oregon baker behind Sweet Cakes Bakery refused to bake a wedding cake for a same sex marriage, saying it was against his religion. Goldman, however, says it doesn't make any sense. "It’s petty, it’s small... this man has wrapped up his hatred in the cloak of religion," Goldman said. And if Goldman whips up anything like his insane inauguration cake, that couple in Oregon is going to be very happy.

Update: Goldman has been baking up same-sex wedding cakes for a while now, tweeting the following in the response:
