Divorce is no fun, but lately the newly unmarried have been throwing parties to celebrate their newfound freedom. Possibly the trend started with celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Robin Thicke, who had huge blowouts after their marriages fell apart. However they started, divorce parties have led to a new trend in baking: the divorce cake.
Divorce cakes don’t tend to be as lavish as wedding cakes (though some of these divorce cakes are impressive). Some people opt for a message in icing about how they feel towards their partner. Others took out their feelings on plastic cake-toppers standing in for their exes. But the one thing all the cakes have in common is emotional honesty.
Here at awkward.com we applaud anyone who makes the best of a tough situation, and having cake with your friends is a great way to start.
