Fat Cupcake owner Anjelica Hayes spoke with The Oregonian and said that she is not racist.
"I myself am black," she said.
Hayes said she named the cupcake Mr. President because she was told that President Obama's favorite cookie was Oreos. "We thought that was a cool coincidence.
What sounds like it would be really fancy?" Hayes said. "We thought of the presidential office."
I just thought it was an honorary name, I thought I'd be honored if someone named a cupcake after me."
Hayes said that the new name of the cupcake is "The Professional," until the election is over. She said regardless of what it's called, the dessert is one of her shop's most popular items.
