Coming Out With Cake – A Sweet(s) Story

As reported via several media sources this morning, a Tumblr user came out to her parents recently in an unusual and heart-warming way: using food and clever puns. According to an update on her blog, the cake was a success:

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!
