Piece of Cake

Two brides, porcelain wedding cake toppers Val and Mara, are unsatisfied with the grooms they are paired with. One of the guys turns abusive, and his bride is injured but not destroyed. The other couple comes to the rescue and the whole cake shop turns into a war scene. After the violence dies down, Val and Mara really only want to be with each other. It's a touching tale, but the real story is revealed in still shots shown during the credits. I had to laugh when the shopkeeper arrived the next morning. As Marvel has taught us, never leave before the credits roll. The award-winning short film Piece of Cake was written and directed by Sophie Feher and produced by Emma Goeas at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Look at the shop owner cleaning up around the 4:01 mark.  Then check this character –
(Sarah Clinton, from the 'Dumbing of Age' webcomic)

Strong family resemblance, wouldn't you say?

Also, did you notice that the blonde half of the lesbian couple who eventually selected the cake with Val and Mara had also lost part of HER left arm at the elbow?

Good thing the cut away when they did so they didn't show two women kissing. If they had Savannah College would have to be picketed and staff harassed by real ungay Amurkins.
