Awesome Teen Comes Out To Parents By Baking Them An ‘I’m Gay’ Cake


Have you had your heart warmed yet on this cold, shitty (at least in New York) day?

A teen Tumblr user named “ellende-generes” recently came out as gay to her parents in what might be the best way I’ve ever seen: by baking them a colorfully decorated cake. Who could get mad at someone for being gay, she reasoned, when said person had just baked them a cake? Not her parents, that’s for sure.

It was accompanied by a note:

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 of 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.


I counted five cake puns here, which means this kid is the best kid ever, times five. I want to buy this young wordsmith a million cake flavored milkshakes.

Along with the whole rest of the internet, I was pretty much ready to adopt her when I saw this, but judging from her mom’s response, that won’t be necessary:

Cake update:

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!

An awesome, pun-proficient daughter and delicious cake to eat? This kid’s family is winning at everything.

    I want to be friends with this girl.

    I even kind of wish I were gay so I could date her.

    Hah so cute! Maybe my parents would be cooler about it if I had made cake.

  • Nikola

    That’s a cool kid. I’d be proud to have a kid make that many cake puns.

    This made me happy. The “It gets batter” pun is just the best thing I’ve read all day.
