Celebrity pastry chef Duff Goldman took to Twitter Saturday to point out that President Donald Trump’s inauguration cake was an exact replica of the cake he designed and created for Barack Obama’s 2013 inauguration. 

In a message posted to his Twitter account, Goldman included two comparative images of his cake creation next to Trump’s inaugural cake and wrote, “The cake on the left is the one I made for President Obama’s inauguration 4 years ago. The one on the right is Trumps. I didn’t make it.

According to The Washington Post, neither President Trump’s team or Goldman responded to comment requests but that the woman who created it has openly spoken about her cake.

Tiffany MacIsaac, the owner of Washington, D.C.’s Buttercream Bakeshop, said that she had been commissioned to create the cake.

She said that a person, who hasn't yet been named, came in with a photo of Obama’s cake and asked her to recreate it.

The bakery tried to find out if they wanted to use the cake as inspiration as opposed to an exact replica, but the person who brought in the picture said that they wanted it exactly the same.

“They said, ‘Nope, they want this exact cake. It’s perfect.’ And we said, great,” MacIsaac said.

After all this, on Saturday, Goldman posted to Twitter again, with an apparent change of heart after MacIssac explained that she had no intention to upset him at all.

“Remembering a fantastic cake I made is awesome and the chef that re-created it for @POTUS Trump did a fantastic job,” he tweeted. “Group hug, y’all.”
