The humourous young lady took the brave step of coming out by writing the words ‘I’m gay’ on a cake and acompanied the tasty treat with a pun-filled note because she “thought that doing it this way would be a piece of cake.”

The accompanying note 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, laurel (sorry for so many puns)”

Laurel later updated her Tumblr followers to let them know how things had gone with her parents.

“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!”

“My dad saw the cake and came into me room and hugged me and laughed. He said he loved me and the cake and the letter and everything was perfect. Brb crying.”
