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!
The latest claims of plagiarism surrounding yesterday's inaugural festivities have less to do with Batman and more to do with baking.
To celebrity pastry chef Duff Goldman, the towering nine-tier creation that President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence cut into with a sword last night looked a little too familiar. Goldman points out that the towering cake looked, in fact, almost exactly like the one he made for Barack Obama's inauguration in January of 2013.
The Food Network personality took to Twitter to post a side-by-side comparison of the two cakes. "The cake on the left is the one I made for President Obama's inauguration 4 years ago," he captioned the image. "The one on the right is Trumps. I didn't make it." A suspicious thinking-face emoji completed his message.
Twitter users, however, are mixed in their response to the lookalike cakes. Many are liking and retweeting the post, but others are crying foul on the pastry chef's accusations, citing White House event planners as the real culprit.
