Actress Grace Kelly’s celebrated marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco featured a six-tiered marriage ceremony cake at their reception in 1956, and depicted a 3-dimensional reproduction of Monaco’s Pink Palace, her soon-to-be new residence. The cake inside was chocolate and the frosting beneath was additionally chocolate frosting with a little bit of sour cream included into it to offset the sweetness of the icing. Second point with regard to the baker. Opposite to public opinion, he did not refuse service. He would have gladly bought the gay couple a cake, or cookies, or purple apples for that matter.

New York becomes third state to ban PFAS chemicals in food packaging

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed legislation that will help protect consumers from the harmful effects of a dangerous class of chemicals linked to serious health problems, according to Consumer Reports.

The new law drafted by Assemblymember Patricia Fahy and Sen. Brad Hoylman bans polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), sometimes called “forever chemicals” because they do not break down easily and persist in human bodies and the environment.
