People are up for Coronavirus-Inspired Dessert, are you?

Prague: On Celetná street, in the heart of the historic Old Town district, Prague’s Black Madonna cafe has been selling out of a confection that looks remarkably like the novel coronavirus.

Customers can find the treat in the dessert display case, behind a small card that simply says “virus.” The chocolate-covered dessert with pistachio-and-raspberry filling is about the size of a tennis ball, with virus “spikes” composed of white chocolate and dried raspberries.

“I found a photo of the virus on the internet,” Olga Budnik, the dessert’s creator told. “I figured out in detail how to make the dessert – how to make the spikes, what the colour would be like, and I prepared it all.”

Budnik’s coronavirus-inspired confection has been a huge success, with triple-digit sales each day and rising. “ATTENTION!” begins a recent post on the cafe’s Facebook page that encourages parties of three or more people to make a reservation if they will be ordering virus cakes.

Hoping to parlay one success into another, Budnik told Reuters that she is already brainstorming her next confectionary masterpiece: A Covid-19 vaccination-themed sweet which should taste of citrus and liqueur. “It will be lots of lime with a bit of alcohol,” she said.
