SweetcakeZ is an online cake bakery run by Zeinab Mohamed, from her home in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She received an order to bake a wedding cake fro the summer last week but it was cancelled shortly after when the lady ordering the cake found out Zeinab's last name. She sent Zeinab a private message through facebook stating that her husband is an Iraq war veteran and he doesn't feel comfortable buying your cakes. The message also goes on to read that her husband went as far as changing doctors as his previous one was Muslim.
Zeinab, the customized cake baker from Somalia, was deeply hurt and confused by the message she received. The message hit closer to home as it was from a casual acquaintance
Zeinab, whose Muslim husband, Javon Borst served three years as Navy Medic and is also a war veteran, he told FOX17 news "When I heard it I was let down, but also really just hurt by it because I had thought we've moved away from some of that".
Zeinab hasn't lost all hope as she received an inundation of support from her customers and the general public after her story was reported.
