After "Ace of Cakes" star Duff Goldman shared a picture of President Donald Trump's inauguration cake side-by-side with one the Food Network star made for Obama four years ago, questions and plagiarism accusations about the identical cakes quickly followed.

Goldman tweeted the picture Saturday.

 

 

The tweet went viral, getting retweeted 136,000 times and liked 283,000 times as of Monday afternoon.

The baker of Trump’s cake, Tiffany MacIsaac of Washington, D.C.’s Buttercream Bakeshop, cleared up the confusion, telling The Washington Post the inaugural committee brought in a photo of the Obama cake and requested the same design.

Although the bakery tried to suggest using the picture as “inspiration” rather than a direct copy, the committee insisted they wanted the exact cake, she told the Post.

The bakery is donating the profits from the cake to the Human Rights Campaign, which strongly opposed Trump’s presidential campaign.

“I’m a small business owner, and one of the things I’m very, very proud about is that I don’t discriminate,” MacIsaac told the The Washington Post.

The cake was mostly Styrofoam, with a 3-inch layer for eating at the bottom.

“It’s not for eating,” she said, adding, “I wasn’t expecting it to be seen on TV.”

Goldman later tweeted that the Buttercream Bakeshop cake was “beautiful” and that bakers “borrow and are inspired by each other all the time.”
