A gay couple in Washington, DC asked for a cake with balloons, and the inscription, “Happy Anniversary Lindsey! Love, Sarah.” But that’s not what they received.

When Sarah picked up the cake on Friday, she found a chocolate cake with balloons iced on top and an eerily scrawled message that read, “Lesbian Anniv. No Ballons [sic].”

“How could anyone mistake that for something a person would want on a cake? And what baker would sell something so messy and unprofessional?” she asked.

She complained to the bakery’s manager, but couldn’t manage to exact an explanation for the homophobic message. The manager apologized for the sloppy, inaccurate message, but not it’s offensiveness.
