The group has asked the local mayor Jerome Viaud to take a stance.
However the baker Tannick Tavolaro remains defiant.
He told The Local he found the complaint absurd and firmly denies he is racist.
“At first I thought it was a joke then I read the news. It’s absurd and hurtful. These pastries have absolutely no racial connotation at all,” he said.
“It’s made of chocolate mousse, which is why it’s black. The characters are little human beings, a man and woman but not a black man and a woman,” said Tavolaro.
“These people who attack me don’t know my story or my career or who I am. It’s just intellectual terrorism and I won’t yield to that kind of terrorism,” he said.
Tavolaro has vowed to continue to make his controversial cakes despite the threats.
“I am not racist. I do not belong to any political party. I just argue for freedom of speech,” he told The Local.
