With stores and restaurants closing around the province, it can be hard to stay positive. However, one Ontario bakery has found a way to add a bit of sweetness to the situation. The shop is serving up a brand new treat that's both tasty and informative. Ontario's quarantine cakes will keep you healthy and full during isolation.
The Sweet Bites Bake Bake Shoppe in Oakville, Ontario, has come up with a unique way to keep up business and share a relevant message at the same time.
The shop is now selling "Quarantine Cake" and you can send one to a friend or to yourself to share some love and advice during this time.
The cakes serve two to four people, depending on how hungry you are, and come adorned with messages like, "don't touch your face", or "social distance & chill".
Flavours include Chocolate Sundae, Salted Caramel Vanilla, Chocolate Strawberry, and Vanilla Sprinkle.
Narcity reached out to the bakery owner, Kathy Tang, who said she was inspired by the Butter& cake store in San Francisco, which recently started selling their own versions of quarantine cakes.
Tang was forced to close her doors amid the COVID-19 outbreak and has since seen a huge decrease in business.
She felt that the cakes were a great way to pull together and brighten everyone's day, as well as reinforce CDC health messages in a sweet way.
Getting your hands on one of these treats is literally a piece of cake.
The desserts are available for delivery, and you can place your order by calling or emailing the store.
Each cake costs $45. There is complimentary shipping offered across the Greater Oakville Area, as well as discounted shipping in other regions.
As of tomorrow, the cakes will be available to order on Doordash.
Stay healthy and sweet with these special cakes, and don't forget to listen to their advice!
