A San Fransisco bakery is selling ‘Just Vaccinated’ cakes for people who really want to celebrate receiving their COVID-19 jabs.
A vaccine rollouts move forward around the world, receiving the jab has become a badge of honour, with vaccinated folk posting selfies featuring their vaccination cards to social media.
For those that want to do something really special to celebrate this step towards freedom, Butter&, a bakery in San Fransisco, is selling luxe cakes for this very specific milestone.
The tiered cakes can be ordered in three different sizes and in a variety of flavours including Tonga Vanilla Bean, Passionfruit and Chocolate, Brown Butter and Meyer Lemon, Hazelnut and Chocolate, Sweet Cream and Roasted Berries and Matcha and Strawberry.
This isn’t the first time the bakery has made headlines for its themed cakes, with its quarantine cakes that featured messages such as “wash your hands” and “don’t touch you face” written on the top in icing going viral (pun intended!) last year.
‘Just Vaccinated’ isn’t the only option for happy vax-recipients: customers can also choose sayings like “thanks, science!” and “HVD,” which stands for Happy Vaccination Day. The Butter& team was inspired by a customer’s order back in February 2021, which they explained on Facebook:
“Shortly after Valentine’s Day, a client ordered a cake with the custom script “HVD!” on the front. “HVD? But wasn’t Valentine’s Day a week or two ago? Maybe it’s a typo,” we thought. But it wasn’t – the cake was a gift to her friend who was receiving the coronavirus vaccine that day, so HVD = Happy Vaccination Day. We all thought it was such a sweet sentiment, as the Butter& team had just received the first dose ourselves.”
