Fat Cupcake opened its doors in Southeast Portland about a month ago. The new location, the company's second, serves pastries and a wide variety of cupcakes out of a small storefront on 72nd Avenue.

In early September, however, not long after opening, the shop ran into some trouble when Portland customers became upset by the "Mr. President" cupcake, described on the menu as "Oreo (™) Cookie baked inside white cake, cookies n' cream buttercream."

This is when things get tricky for the Lefties: a member of one of their pet groups commits a leftist heresy.

I want to learn more about The Intern cake. Is it blue cake with white icing? Or perhaps it's a cigar-shaped cake?

Ouch really
Darn we were so excited to have a niche bakery in place of the ancient His ( as in Jesus?) Bakery... I guess I'll stop on by tomorrow - I don't / on the face of it/ think that's ok...
Provocative at the very least...

This story really made me laugh. Now not even black people are safe from political correctness.

I like how people think the best response to a racism charge is to claim immunity because you aren't the sort of person who can be labeled racist. This is privilege, no?

When we called to ask Anjelica Hayes, the owner of Fat Cupcake, about the accusations of racism, she responded, "I have been asked this so many times."
She said over the phone Monday, unequivocally, that she isn't racist.
For one thing, she said, "I myself am black."
Hayes said she is a born and raised Portlander. She said she is very involved in the community and has even started something she called, "our 'Piece of Cake' movement."
"We have driven around Portland to give away cakes to the homeless," she said, "and donated thousands of cupcakes to the community."
Facebook reveals that she is barely black enough to pass as black.

I'm sad, I'm so proud of Obama, this never ending racism ( black people can be as rude as anyone else) makes me throw up in my mouth alittle.. And I just ate dinner.

Plus I'll take a chocolate cupcake anyday over vanilla.

I don't know if it applies in this case, but in general if you leave or break with the Democrat communist party, you lose your immunities and privileges and your spot on the totem pole no matter who you are.

The Hillary cupcake is laced with cyanide and ricin.

I live for these moments because they have to apply their own rules to one of their pet groups.

It's fascinating really. Like watching a spider try to crawl its way out of a toilet.
