15 yr. old Laurel [Tumblr user ellende-generes] found a truly unique way to break the news to her folks that she is gay. She baked them a cake with “I’m Gay” in bright green frosting on top, and left it in the kitchen with a 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 one really takes the cake.”
it gets batter.
love, laurel (sorry for so many puns)
Laurel kept her friends in the loop, posting first a photo of the presentation, and then how her parents took the news. As one would hope, there were tears and laughter, acceptance and support… and cake.
