For anyone who's ever come out as gay or lesbian, it can be one of the most difficult things to do in their life.
Especially, when they go to tell their parents. How will they react? Will they accept it? Will they still love you?
Telling them isn't always easy.
Well, a 15-year-old girl named Laurel found a creative and literally sweet way to come out to her parents.
She baked a cake and wrote "I'm gay" on it in bright green icing. She also left a note beside the cake 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)
Laurel uploaded the picture on Tumblr, then posted an update saying...
"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!"
Same deal with her dad.
"My dad saw the cake and came into my room and hugged me and laughed. He said he loved me and the cake and the letter and everything was perfect."
