Getting divorced is never pleasant, but a few optimistic divorcées are making the most out of their sticky situation and celebrating their recent singledom in the most delicious way possible. Ever since Khloé Kardashian celebrated officially dropping Lamar Odom’s last name after her divorce with a sheet cake of her new driver’s license (her home address was conveniently listed as 13 Freedom Lane), people have been obsessed with revealing their freshly divorced status with fabulously themed cakes. Here are nine of the best divorce cakes we’ve found on Instagram — congrats to all the newly single ladies!
1. The Movie Reference: What would Han Solo do if he knew you were going through a trying divorce? Oh, you know, get you a hilarious galactic-themed divorce cake. Also, heads up Adam Driver — this divorcée is single again!
2. Honoring the Beyhive: Is there any occasion where Beyoncé isn’t appropriate? Yeah, we didn’t think so. This recent divorcée decided to make lemonade out of lemons with this Bey-utiful divorce cake.
