Who would have ever thought that a virus that attacks the respiratory system would have toilet paper flying off the shelves but, alas, here we are.
Believe it or not though, what has left some individuals scrouging from store to store for something to wipe their bums has also proven to be the saving grace for one bakery in Finland.
The Ronttosrouva bakery was on the cusp of permanently shutting down their store after the COVID-19 pandemic caused people to cancel their orders in March, according to UPI. That was until a photo of their toilet paper cake went viral.
Bakery owner Sanna Lampinen shared that the tasty creation that pokes fun at the current lack of paper products resulted in hundreds of new orders.
Not only did this allow the bakery to stay in business and keep and pay all of her employees, but she was also able to hire two additional individuals to help her meet the increase in demand.
