When he decided to come out to his parents, gay teen Keanu Williams opted to take the confectionary route.

Though it was shot in August 2013, video footage of Williams' surprise "I Love Penis" cake is just now making the media rounds, having been featured on Instinct, Gay Star News and other media outlets.

"I wanted to do something different to tell them and making a video let me tell people I don't see everyday something that recently happened in my life," Williams writes on his YouTube page. "I'm happy and don't regret what has happened."

A number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teens have opted for unique ways of coming out in recent months. Last year, Tumblr user ellende-generes, identified only as Laurel, presented her parents with a "coming out cake," along with a heartfelt note, filled with plenty of clever, pastry-themed puns.

Meanwhile, a gay teen identified only as Ryan secretly recorded his decision to come out to his mother late last year.
