In a twist of events, Buttercream Bakeshop donated the profits from its Trump inauguration cake to Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Many media outlets have reported that the cake looked a lot like Barack Obama’s, and in an Instagram post, they have confirmed it.
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. @duff_goldman originally created this for Obama’s inauguration 4 years ago and this years committee commissioned us to re-create it. Best part is all the profits are being donated to @humanrightscampaign, 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!
HRC is the largest LGBT+ civil rights organisation in the USA. HRC President Chad Griffin says of the inauguration, “it is more important now than ever before for us to organise, mobilise, and fight in solidarity against hate and any attempts to roll back the rights of LGBTQ [sic] people. No matter who sits in the Oval Office, HRC won’t back down an inch in the fight for full equality and the equal dignity of each and every American. Forward.”
