Divorce Cakes and More . . .

A client mentioned yesterday that he was going to throw a party when his divorce was final. I drew his attention to the numerous divorce cakes that are on display on the internet if one does a google search. There has been a previous Bytes post about divorce cakes but there are new images since then so here is a selection . . .

TV star Shanna Moakler's divorce from Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. At Moakler's divorce party at a Bellagio nightclub in Las Vegas, guests were treated to a tiered wedding cake that featured a knife-wielding bride standing on top, while blood dripped down the side to the bottom, where a mortally wounded groom lay.

“I wanted to turn my divorce into a positive. What if I didn’t blame the other person for anything, and held myself 100 percent accountable?
