Everywhere around the world people are trying to find ways to cope with the reality of facing a global pandemic like this for the first time in our lives. Some people are resorting to more creative ways of coping and trying to cheer others up in their locales.
One way that people are doing this is with food creations. Here’s a look at some of the innovative food creations that are making the rounds around the world.
Toilet roll shaped cakes
Dr. Anthony Fauci donuts
In hard hit New York, a donut shop has created a special donut in honor of infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of President Donald Trump’s coronavirus task force.
He has emerged as one of the leaders in the battle against coronavirus and many have respected his straight talk at a time when it has become difficult to get accurate information from some of our leaders.
These donuts have also been a huge hit with locals and they have sold thousands of these which are buttercream frosted.
Is this wrong?
Some people might take issue with others trying to make light of the coronavirus (and cashing in), since after all thousands of people have died from it and many more will succumb to the disease in the future.
But I think the intentions are pure in these cases and it seems to be giving people a reason to smile or even feel a bit more lighthearted about the situation. Obviously, it’s still a serious disease but there is something to be said about companies doing things like this.
It’s sort of a way for people to feel like we are all in this together and to have a little laugh at the same time, so I don’t feel offended by any of this.
