Cake, invites, food, music, and clothing are required and this is not a wedding or a birthday celebration. You get to shop for all of this just the same. This is a divorce party. One of the newest trends may now very well be appearing at your local bakery. A Florida bakery owner says her divorce cake orders are slowly increasing. One cake features the bride dragging the groom out with the trash. On a different divorce cake, your ring goes in a coffin in a cemetary on top of the cake. The ideas are endless. Orders for her bakery treats are being purchased by both men and women.
They say it’s not about celebrating the end of a marriage. But it is rather a celebration of a new beginning. Divorce parties aren’t new. I went to one in 1995 and it was a blast. Of course, that was a divorce/engagement party. Don’t ask! I do not remember cake involved. I do remember alcohol and lots of laughter. But this trend is increasing. Whatever your thoughts are on this trend, whether you are for it or against it, I say let them eat cake. If the party isn’t for you then it’s not about you. It’s about the person who is divorcing. Maybe this is what they need to kick off the new phase of their life in a happier way. It’s a sweet treat that we use to celebrate all kinds of events in our lives. I am all for a party that involves cake! So invite me, my friends. Party away, but, don’t forget the cake.
