Protecting the sanctity of buttercream and dragées

by Jeremy Hooper

201009241354Have you heard the one about the pastry chef who wouldn't add rainbow colors to his dainty little creations because he finds the hues too gay? It's not a joke: That seems to have totally happened in Indianapolis, IN:

Indianapolis Bakery Won’t Make Rainbow Cupcakes, Citing ‘Values’ [TWO]

Speaking to a local news reporter, co-owner David Stockton cited "values" and his "two young impressionable daughters" as reasons why he'd be reluctant to whip up such vibrant confections. Which is weird, because it's actually gluttony that's actually the big ticket sin -- whose "agenda" is really threatening Christian "values" here?

And besides -- cupcakes?! Not to be stereotypical, but if a cupcake can't go pride-colored, what can? This is like a quiche maker saying his creations can't be served at gay brunch!

So yea -- come on, Mr. S.: Rethink this decision and apologize, and you might just find a new customer base. Or, or, or -- send us a baker's dozen of chocolate chip as a make-good. Whichever's in your heart.
