Middlebury Baker Catching Flak for AR-15 Cake

Middlebury baker and artistic cake designer Jennifer Montalto, owner of Jenny-Lu’s, has suddenly found the semi-professional bakery she runs out of her home kitchen is garnering a lot of attention — though not all good.

The sudden interest in Montalto’s baking stems from a life-like AR-15 gun cake she made for a 51st birthday party held at the annual Friends of NRA dinner. While many have praised the cake for its detail and design, others are calling it “insensitive,” as the weapon was used in the brutal shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14.

Those who insist on expanding the nanny state insist on everything being political and in the control of the state. This is only natural to them, as they think of the state as their god.

Hard to pass judgement here...

need to know capacity, and how many rounds were baked into it.

Hypocrites. No outcry over penis-shaped cakes; they look like the weapons used in rapes.

They're welcome to worship whatever idiotic thing they'd like, but they ought to bear in mind they're in America, which has enjoyed freedom of religion since the first English settlers arrived. Ingrates!

Impressive cake! Too bad it’s dangerous and could shoot 100 rounds of icing at a fast rate.

It’s also insensitive to use coathangers because of all the women who allegedly died before the abortion-lovers made abortion a holy sacrament.

We’ll order any cakes not wanted by libtards.

Insensitive, my smelly Obama.

Tell them to shove it up their smelly Obamas.

It’s time to give it back to libtards multiplied x10.

It’s gonna be war anyway, so why wait?

Some people think a bride and groom atop a wedding cake is insensitive to queers.

The hell with what people think. Why should anyone worry about what some nuts think is insensitive.

I could post some pictures of cakes I’ve seen done done for nurse’s parties, but they’d be pulled. The C-Section ones are pretty realistic.

I have actually been to Middlebury.

It brings tears. One of those once great American cities where everybody worked hard, saw to it that their kids were better off than they were and saluted the American flag in acknowledgement that this country, unique in the world, made a good life possible.

Today, a “Detroit Jr.” where the “Superior, Politically-correct” get to practice their Snarkyness on a hard working, talented entrepreneur in hopes of destroying her.

I hope they sleep well. I couldn’t.

Looking at a photo of the cake, I am ready to get a cup of coffee and enjoy a piece of that beautiful cake! Is the gun on the cake edible?

Did the cowardly subhuman who killed those children actually use an AK47 or did he use a Bushmaster XM15? Are they equal?

Why are not the "offended people" concerned with the fact that the perp had serious mental problems that were untreated, thanks to the liberals themselves?

“It was my cake and it was beautiful. I bet the people that think it was insensitive have no clue I had family in Sandy Hook school that day and i have a brother that is permanantly messed up because he was a first responder. I bet they also do not know I was held up shot and roobed and almost killed and yet I dont blame the gun or everyone of the same coler that did that to me. I believe firmly in my rights and stop trying to play this into somehting to take my rights away. I did not do this to those kids. the NRA did not do that to those kids. and we have nothing to do with anything like that. So go bark up another tree and leave my rights alone and we will leave yours alone. its really that simple. Help us fight the real fight. which is not guns. its a social and mental issue. that is hard to fix. but its so much easier to blame a gun. too bad you will never ever undertstand rational thought on this subject.”

It’s hard to draw a conclusion as to what he did use. In the investigation report I feel sure he just used 2 pistols. and they found an AR 15 in his vehicle and maybe a shotgun too.Now it’s been a while since I’ve read it but I particularly say he only used 2 pistols and a shotgun, because that got my attention After the incident took place and after the news broadcasted that it was done w/an assault rifle.It’s been a while now, so does anyone have specifics in a police report in what was used? Please post it. Thanks.

IIRC, the CT State Police said shotgun found in car, two pistols and rifle in school a few days after the shooting. That was more of a press release online than a police report though.
