A gay couple took their story viral after a Denver-area cake shop turned down their order for a wedding cake last week. Supporters of same-sex marriage have been calling the shop, and protesters plan to gather in front of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colo., on Saturday. The backlash adds to the emerging food fight over businesses -- such as Chick-fil-A -- that have reputations of opposing gay marriage. David Mullins, 28, and Charlie Craig, 31, say they went to the cake shop to order a rainbow cake for their upcoming nuptials in Providence, Mass., on the recommendation of their reception venue.
