The Perfect Wedding Cake

The wedding cake was pure perfection. Sarah stood looking at it with tears in her eyes. It was beautiful. 

Reaching out, she traced her finger along the paper-thin lace made of icing.  A tentative smile peeked from her face, her head tilting to the side as she started to hum the wedding march under her breath. 

Paying no attention to the people around her, she continued to hum, swaying a little with the song only she could hear. Her smile grew wider as her finger dipped a little too hard and scraped away some of the delicate edible lace. Putting her finger to her lips, she tasted the sugary delicacy and moaned in appreciation.

She looked up and met her mother's eyes. The concern she saw there was the last straw. 

Something snapped inside of her, the final straw. She couldn't handle sympathy. The pity was too much. Her gaze flew about the room. Her friends. His friends. Their families all standing around, watching her as she stood at the table in front of the cake. She let loose with a blinding smile that people couldn't help but return. She was a picture of gorgeous perfection. Her dress made her look like a princess. Her hair and makeup were absolutely stunning.

Still, she searched, looking for anyone who might make her feel like she wasn't losing her mind.

Finding nothing in the crowd, she turned to the cake. Her facade cracked as she snatched the bride and groom from the top tier of the cake. Her hands balled into fists and she raised them high above her head before bringing them down on the cake. The frosting and the cake mashing like nothing under her hands. 

She started to laugh, the hysteria was completely taking over as she smashed the cake over and over, pounding her fists into the gooey mess of sugar and cake. Tears started to flow, marring her perfect makeup. Her voice rose over the still silence of the crowd, "And you said I couldn't have pound cake for my wedding!!!" before she broke down completely, sinking to the floor in a mess of hysterical sobbing.
