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.
