The Buttercream Bakeshop, who baked Donald Trump’s inauguration cake, reports that they have donated all the profits from the towering pastry to the Human Rights Campaign, a pro-LGBTQ organization.

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! (Check out Tuesday's Instagram post to see how much we were able to donate!)

On Instagram, the company told the story behind the cake. They wrote that the cake actually was a rip-off of a design created by Food Network star baker Duff Goldman for Obama’s inauguration 4 years ago. Buttercream Bakeshop also affirmed their support for LGBTQ rights.

Duff Goldman confirms that the design is a copy of his work:

But Goldman expressed support of Buttercream Bakeshop’s work:

And so do we! Exposing Trump’s pathetic plagiarism and giving his money to help the queer community is a pretty sweet way to say, “Fuck you.”
