Responding to news that an Oregon baker refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple, Baltimore-based Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman sent out an open offer to bake and transport a wedding cake for them completely free of charge. The executive chef of Charm City Cakes told the Huffington Post that it makes “absolutely no sense” for a cake decorator to take a stand against a couple’s nuptials:
GOLDMAN: I just wanted to say that… if the couple that’s out there — if you guys want, I will make you a cake for free, drive it out to Portland at no charge, just to right this wrong, because this guy’s an idiot.
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 make absolutely no sense. It’s petty, it’s small. I mean this guy has wrapped up his hatred in the cloak of religion.

The brides’ names have not been revealed, but they did file a complaint against Sweet Cakes by Melissa, the shop that refused to provide them with a wedding cake.
