Happily Never After: Divorce Cakes Are a Thing

One of the milder sentiments on divorce as expressed in confection.

Recently, a friend of mine gave a shout-out to her husband via Facebook status update to thank him for helping her move. I checked and didn’t see anything about a “relationship status” change, so I commented, “Well, this is a pretty efficient way to make an announcement! Did you see this on Pinterest? But I have to say ‘divorce-reveal cupcakes’ are tastier!” Turns out, they are splitting up. And fortunately for me, my friend has the same sense of humor I do.

But little did I know (and really, I should have known), that divorce cakes are real. Because divorce parties are real (and divorce registries to refill empty cabinets, one would assume) — and you can’t have a proper party without a cake. Mental Floss, the Huffington Post and, of course Pinterest all have some interesting galleries of cakes to peruse if you're looking for a chuckle (or some ideas).

But I find a lot of them to be a bit more macabre than celebratory. Then again, I’ve never been divorced, so perhaps the headless spouses aren’t so off-base after all.
