Getting bad news always sucks, and no matter how it's delivered it will usually rain on your parade. Thankfully, the bearers of bad news themselves are tired of your desire to shoot the messenger; they also know that you're probably hungry right now. So this time, to cushion the blow of bad news, they brought cake.
A confection useful for all types of events, cake rarely fails to leave people in awe and good nature. Even in the most awkward of circumstances, frosted pastries feel a lot better than the empty air you would otherwise wallow in. The cakes in this list do their best to coat these situations in as much icing as they can.
At least these folks got a cake for their troubles, which is more than many can say.
