Texas bakery sees surge of support after backlash ofer Pride cookies

An East Texas bakery is being inundated with orders, supportive messages and donations after revealing it faced backlash over its colorful cookies celebrating Pride Month.

The owners of Lufkin-based Confections unknowingly set off the chain of bittersweet events last Wednesday, when they posted a Facebook photo advertising their heart-shaped, rainbow-iced cookies and calling for "More LOVE" and "Less hate."

The following day, however, they reported the opposite: A post on the bakery's page said it had lost a "significant amount of followers" because of the cookies, and received a "very hateful message" canceling an order of five dozen cookies that had already been decorated.

Noting that an order that size is "big in our world," the owners told their Facebook followers that the cookies would be available for purchase in the shop for $3 each, and said they hoped the next day would be better.

Then they went viral.
