I’m posting this a little late and many people are probably already aware of the “Gay Cake” or the “Gayke” as its creator, Laurel affectionately calls it but I wanted to share it in case some people missed it.
Back in January, Laurel decided to come out to her parents on a tasty looking cake accompanied by a letter full of cake-y puns. She later posted an update on her tumblr about how her parents took it and we all let out a sigh of relief that the fantastic cake, and Laurel of course, were met with love and support. Yay for happy endings!
“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 one really takes the cake.”
Love, Laurel (sorry for so many puns)”
