Finnish baker's toilet roll cakes keep profits rolling in

A quick-thinking Finnish bakery has saved itself from financial ruin due to the new coronavirus pandemic by creating a cake that looks like a toilet paper roll.

The dismayed staff at the Ronttosrouva bakery found all their orders cancelled last month, at the same time as panicked consumers began to hoard toilet paper rolls.

This sparked the idea of a toilet roll cake made of oat batter, passion fruit mousse and covered with white fondant.

The first five cakes sold within an hour, baker Uliana Timofeeva told Reuters, and the cake became a social media hit.

The bakery now has hundreds of orders and its owner Saana Lampinen has even been able to hire two extra people to her 9-member team.
