As a lover of puns, I absolutely love this story about a teen who came out to her parents in the most creative, ingenious way I've read yet: she baked a cake.
Bear with me, it gets better. Not only did a 15-year-old named Laurel "sweeten the blow" to her parents, she iced the words I AM GAY on the cake and delivered a handwritten message.
According to an article in Gawker, the note read:
"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)"
A sweetener, for sure. Lauren's parents should be proud of their daughter's creative spirit, not least of which her remarkable bravery.
Fortunately the cake—and the message—were well received by the teen's parents who hugged, laughed, chatted, and of course, devoured the cake.
Laurel, we at YMC agree, cake makes everything batter! Wishing you and your family a sweet future...
