Is a committed vow of lifetime love the only thing that irks Oregon cake bakers?

by Jeremy Hooper

You know those Oregon cake bakers who simply cannot fathom using their confectionary skills for customers who will consume the pastries while gay and married? Well Williamette Weekly wanted to know if two of the shops that have been in the news recently, Sweet Cakes by Melissa and Fleur Cakes, are consistent in rejecting marital "immorality" or if they simply target gay people's marriage. Hilarity ensues:

[Willamette Weekly] 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.”
