This post was originally posted last summer after the Supreme Court ruled for marriage equality. My birthday was last week, and I wanted to give you guys a cake to celebrate, but since Orlando, my heart has been heavy and I’ve been trying to come to terms with the events in our country. Luckily, I remembered this cake. Love is love is love, you guys, and we believe that this small token of solidarity will show that Garlic, My Soul, is mourning Orlando along with this country, and that we are not standing for inaction anymore. We hope you have a cake and remember that each day is a gift, and hope that you, too, will fight for action as we change this great nation. Thanks, y’all, and enjoy this cake!
#TBT to last week, folks. Because #lovewins and we’re still excited.
We saw friends and loved ones afforded the constitutional right to marry and we wanted to take another moment to celebrate with them.
So in true, Garlic, My Soul fashion, we baked for the occasion. And created an almost foot tall, multi-colored token of our affections, inspired by the couples who headed straight to the court houses in their hometowns to tie the knot. If you didn’t get a wedding cake this weekend, let us offer you this.
We know there’s a long way to go before our country is truly free from inequality, a lot of healing needed that cake won’t fix. But we hope each step, large and small, brings us closer to people treating people with humanity, compassion and love.
As a small kitchen note, how great are these colors, right? The GMS kitchen has some brilliant food color gels that we can highly recommend. Being gel, they won’t change the consistency of whatever treat you’re dying. And look at those colors. Bright and proud! Just like our feelings for the Supreme Court.
#LoveWins, y’all. That’s something to celebrate.
