For those of us who might wish to throw a more modest and sedate party to mark the end of a marriage, ordering a "divorce cake" could be the way forward.

对于那些希望用更端庄安静的方式来纪念婚姻结束的人来说,订一份“离婚蛋糕”可能是一种好办法。

At one bakery inFlorida, Elite Cake Creations inCooperCity, nearMiami, they are now getting three to four requests for divorce cakes each month.

佛洛里达州库珀市有家叫做“精英蛋糕店”的面包房,就是迈阿密附近的那家,他们现在每月都都能接到三到四个离婚蛋糕的订单。

Owner Beatriz Otero, says she once made a cake for a male client who asked for it in the shape of a golf bag, with a sign on it that read "free at last, going golfing".

店主贝丽特·奥特洛说,她曾经应要求给一位男性做过蛋糕,是高尔夫球形状的,上面有个小牌子写着“终于自由了,去打高尔夫”。

Most requests, however, are for a picture of a bride dragging a groom by the leg, with a sign that says "take him to the trash".

然而大部分订单都有一个图案是新娘拽着新郎的腿,写着“把他扔进垃圾堆里”。

Other cakes may feature grooms being eaten by an alligator, or dismembered in a Jacuzzi.

另外有些特色的蛋糕,新郎被鳄鱼吃掉,或者被肢解在浴缸里。

Ms Otero says: "For one of my customers we did her wedding cake, then five years later we were doing her divorce cake.

奥特洛女士说:“曾有位顾客,我们给她做了结婚蛋糕,五年之后我们又为她做了离婚蛋糕。”

"Relationships are hard. My way of helping them is making a sour situation a little bit sweeter."

“感情太艰难。我能为他们做的就是在心酸中加一点甜”。

An Elite Cake Creations' divorce cake for 10 people typically costs about $70, with the customer being able to choose from more than 150 different flavour and fillings combinations.

精英蛋糕店的离婚蛋糕通常是10人份的,是70美元,顾客们可以在150多种口味和馅料中选择。
