The Sweetest Way to Come Out to Your Parents

After baking a cute little cake, Laurel snapped a picture of it and posted it on her tumblr, Home of the GAYke, with the message "Left this for my parents.”

Iced with the simple words "I'm gay," the Ellen DeGeneres fan's homemade cake was also accompanied by a handwritten note that 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)”

She later updated: "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!"
