Due to recent overzealous hoarding during the covid-19 pandemic, toilet paper has been a rare find at the store these days — unless you look in the baked goods section. That's because toilet paper-themed cakes have now begun to pop up at various groceries and bakeries everywhere.
The cheeky cakes have been spotted at Albertson's locations in Southern California as well as a ShopRite supermarket in New Jersey. Bakeshops are also getting in on the trend, with spots like B.Candy in Corona Del Mar, CA making toilet paper mini cakes and Two Fat Cookies in Delray Beach, FL serving up toilet paper cupcakes.
"Our toilet paper cupcakes sold out like wildfire," gushed Two Fat Cookies.
I guess even toilet paper cakes are getting snatched off of shelves with the quickness, too, then. Hopefully the re-stock will be a lot quicker than the real ones.
