The tweet sure seemed like a jab at Trump. But then it turned out the cake was SUPPOSED to be a spitting image of Obama's cake. And everything is cool... kind of.
Buttercream Bakeshop, who were commissioned to make the Trump cake, posted an Instagram on Saturday, explaining that they were hired to make an exact replica of Obama's cake. Then they brilliantly trolled Trump and his homophobic, hate-mongering administration by announcing where all of the proceeds from the cake are going...
The caption reads:
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!
That's correct: 100% of the profits from the cake intended to celebrate the inauguration of a president and vice president with a horrific record on LGBT rights were donated to a pro-LGBT rights group. Now that is a jab.
Ain't that sweet?
Revenge is a dish best served with a side of helping a good cause.
