The market of end of life planning tools is rife with legal mazes, paved with anxiety and managed by grey, ill-fit- suits. Wills, death, life insurance, estate planning, lawyers, fear, more death, rinse repeat.

But what if we viewed death—in all its complexity and sadness—as an equal celebration of life's great moments? To do so we borrowed a mnemonic heavily associated with celebration—a cake —and used it as the crown of our execution in tackling this taboo head on. Using the product itself, is as easy as cake.
