President Trump commissioned a very interesting cake from the Buttercream Bakeshop in Washington DC for his inauguration. It happened to be a replica Barack Obama’s inauguration cake and was presented at one of Trump’s inaugural balls. The cake was actually cut by the Donald himself and VP Mike Pence and is assumed to cost approximately $1,000.
But the interesting twist is that the Buttercream Bakeshop plans to donate the money from the cake to the Human Rights Campaign’s fight for LGBT equality.
They wrote: “Excited to share the cake we got to make for one of last night’s inaugural balls. While we most love creating original designs, when we are asked to replicate someone else’s work we are thrilled when it is a masterpiece like this one. [Celebrity baker] Duff Goldman originally created this for Obama’s inauguration 4 years ago and this year’s committee commissioned us to re-create it.”
They added that the “best part is all the profits are being donated to Human Rights Campaign, one of our favorite charities who we have loved working with over the years. Because basic human rights are something every man, woman and child~ straight, gay or the rainbow in between~ deserve!”
Bravo, Buttercream Bakeshop! Bravo!
