11 Funny, Sarcastic Cakes Take Celebrating To A Whole New Level

Every occasion is a cake-worthy occasion, if you ask me. Got fired from your job? Have a slice of cake. Ran out of clean clothes on laundry day? Blow out the candles.

Having a celebratory cake around can make even the worst moments feel so much better. And, evidently, I’m not the only one who believes this. Friends have come up with a whole lot of reasons to celebrate. Leaving their jobs, getting older, you name it.

But, they don’t have just any old party to commemorate these events. Oh no! These sarcastic cakes take the idea of “having a reason to celebrate” to a whole other level. If you were to receive one of these cakes, you might not know if you’re supposed to love your friends or hate them.

Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself:

1. Late Birthday

It’s never too late to celebrate, as long as there’s cake.

2. New Job

Got a new job? Your co-workers are… proud of you?

3. Bye

Sometimes letting go feels good.

4. Going Away

In case there was any question as to why you’re leaving…

5. Nobody Likes You

Nobody likes you? That’s OK. At least there’s cake to ease the blow!

6. We Hope You Fail

Your co-workers weren’t bitter about you leaving were they? Umm… maybe just a bit? What gave it away? The cake that read, “You’re dead to us now, we hope you fail.” Yep, that was it.

Sad and Useless

7. Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to you! Say goodbye to your youth! Is that how the song goes?


8. Picture Cake

Maybe the whole “portrait cake” thing wasn’t such a good idea after all.

9. Seven Years Down The Drain

Quitting after seven years. It feels good, doesn’t it?

10. Another Year Older

Another year older, another year closer to the grave? That’s one way to look at it, I suppose.

11. Thank You For Being A Friend

We’re all a little difficult sometimes. What better way to thank our nearest and dearest than with cake? Duh.


No matter the reason, eat cake! It’ll make everything better, I promise.
