Another day, another cake story, amirite?

In today's news, we have a bunch of straight people gettin' themselves all worked up over some flour and sugar and a couple of eggs, because apparently, a cake is not always just literally a cake.

Anyway, here's what happened. The Freeport Bakery in Sacramento, California made a custom-ordered cake for a birthday party. They shared an image of said cake, captioning it "Ken's looking good".

Here is said image:

The image was quickly picked up by anti-LGBTQIA+ groups, who see this baked collection of ingredients as ~support for transgenderism~, saying that the bakery was guilty of supporting "mental illness". They also stated that they would be boycotting the bakery because of it's offensive disregard for their "Christian values".

The bakery's owner, Marlene Goetzeler, was interviewed by Fox40, sounded completely bewildered by the response.

“Naively, I guess I just thought this is a really cool cake, and look at how great they did with the butter cream," she said, adding: "What’s wrong with a Ken cake?”

“I started getting some negative comments… Then a couple days later I noticed there was a big dip in unlikes. I was kind of surprised," she continued.

“I was shocked that somebody would be offended.”

And that's your latest "gay cakes are offensive and we're all going to hell" news.
