Gay Cake

A 15-year-old girl "took the cake" in coming out to her parents.

The girl, identified only as Laurel, baked a cake with the words "I'm gay" written on top and left it on the kitchen counter with a pun-filled note explaining her sexuality, Gawker reported.

The photo she took of the cake and note has since gone viral online.

"I'm gay," the note read. "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."

Laurel later updated her Tumblr account with her parents' reactions, saying her dad simply laughed and hugged her.

"My mom saw it and cried of happiness," Laurel wrote. "We hugged and cried together. Then, we all ate the cake and talked. I am very lucky to have such supporting parents."
