BAKING BAD

How To Make Coming Out A Piece Of Cake…Literally

gayke-1

Tumblr’er ellende-generes decided to make coming out to her parents a sweet treat with a gay cake accompanied by a pun-laden explanatory letter:

“Good morning parents, I’m gay. I’ve wanted to tell you for a long time. I thought doing it this way would be a piece of cake. I hope you still love me. I mean it’s hard not to love someone who baked you a cake. All my friends know and still love me. Your acceptance would be the icing on the cake. I hope you, much like this cake, are not in tiers. I hope we can look back on this and say, ‘Boy, this really takes the cake.’ It gets batter. Love, Laurel (sorry for so many puns).”

Turns out her parents had her cake and ate it too:

“My mom saw it and cried of happiness. We hugged and cried together. Then, we all ate the cake and talked. I am very luck to have such supporting parents and to have so much support from you guys. Thanks everyone! Have a gay day!”

    Generally, I’m quite cynical about thing, but this was a funny/nice story.

    After reading about poor Jadin Bell, this made me smile through the sadness.

    Wish I had known this sooner. Just came out to everyone I know so this would have been a good way.
