You’ve probably heard about the terribly persecuted owners of two bakeries in Oregon who refused to make cakes for same-sex weddings, something that is illegal in that state (which includes sexual orientation in their anti-discrimination laws). An Oregon alt-newspaper decided to have a little fun and see what kind of events the two companies would happily make cakes for.
Baby Out of Wedlock
WW Asks – I’m shopping around for a nice baby shower cake for my friend. It’s her second baby with her boyfriend so I’m not looking for anything too big or fancy—probably enough to serve 15 to 20 people.
Sweet Cake says – “We have a sheet cake that will feed 30, or a 10-inch cake that would feed 30 people. The 10-inch cake is $50 and the sheet cake is $52. Or we have an 8-inch cake that would feed 15 for $40.”Fleur says – Prices vary based on decoration and frosting, but a basic cake is $3 per serving.
WW Asks – My friend is getting divorced and we’d like to throw her a little party to mark the start of her new life. Do you ever write messages on those—we’d want it to say “congratulations!”—and how much would it be for a cake that could serve about eight people?
Sweet Cake says – “A 10-inch is $29.99. That should probably do it….We can definitely do something like that.”
Fleur says – “The price for a 10-inch cheesecake is $36 and up. So it’ll be between $36 and $45, but you’re going to have to call in advance because my schedule for June and July is very busy.”
They’re also fine with a “pagan solstice party.” Seems the gays are the ones that really get their dander up.
