Coming out to parents might not be the easiest thing to do, so this 15-year-old decided to reveal all by baking them a cake accompanied by a sweet note. Laurel wrote:

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 at this and say “boy, this one really takes the cake.”

It gets batter.

Love, Laurel. (Sorry for so many puns.)

Laurel wrote after on her Tumblr account:

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!
