Dortmund bakery sells coronavirus-themed Easter cakes

Germany, Dortmund
April 08, 2020 at 06:41 GMT +00:00 · Published

A bakery in the German city of Dortmund has been selling coronavirus-themed cakes ahead of Easter holidays, as filmed on Tuesday.

"We have made Easter lambs just in time for Easter. But of course these are Corona-lambs, so to say. They have a face mask, very accurate at this point, because of course, this is in everyone's mouth. And we thought it brings a little humour to Easter," said baker Tim Kortuem.

"We firstly made a few plate prototypes to test if they could be brought into the shop, and they were sold relatively quickly. So people take them just as a gag, because it's quite funny," he added.

References to the novel coronavirus have been used by bakeries around the world.
