An Oregon lesbian couple who were denied a wedding cake have accepted celebrity pastry chef Duff Goldman's offer to make a cake for them.

Goldman, who appears on cabler Food Network's Ace of Cakes, jumped in after hearing that Aaron Klein, the owner of Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Gresham, declined to make a cake for the women because he and his wife believe such unions violate their religious beliefs.

Goldman, the 38-year-old executive chef of the Baltimore-based Charm City Cakes shop which is featured on Ace of Cakes, offered to bake and transport a wedding cake for the women free of charge.

“I said, 'Hey I can fix this problem. Somebody was a jerk to them and I can bake them a cake. That's what I can do,'” Goldman told “It involves cake, it involves love, marriage, all things I'm a big fan of.”

In a statement released through their lawyer, the women, who remain anonymous, said they were grateful for the “outpouring of support.”

“We are especially thankful that LGBT-supportive companies have graciously offered their services to make our special day perfect,” they said.

The Oregon Department of Justice is investigating the allegation that the Kleins violated a state law which prohibits discrimination in places of public accommodation.
