COVID-19 has influenced all of our lives in more ways than one, from our lifestyle choices to fashion and even food. While we saw a variety of pandemic food trends emerge since last year, the latest addition to the list is vaccine-themed desserts.

Bakeries across the world are now coming up with a wide range of vaccine-themed cakes and pastries. In Hungary, for instance, a pastry shop has come up with vaccine-themed layered mousses with colourful jelly toppings and decorative syringes on top. Each jelly represents a different COVID-19 vaccine — citrus yellow for AstraZeneca and a slightly darker yellow for Sinopharm, matcha green for Pfizer, orange for Sputnik V, and a vivid blue for Moderna, Reuters reported.

In March, Cerna Madona, a restaurant in Prague created a vaccine-themed dessert with a sponge cake base, banana mousse and strawberry-banana filling, according to expatz.cz. The dessert has a vaccine capsule injected on top. Earlier, they had made a coronavirus-themed black dessert as well.

In January, a bakery in Germany called The Schürener Backparadies introduced vaccine cakes in the shape of big syringes with “2021-Bye Bye Corona,” written on them.

Taking the trend ahead, another bakery came up with a cake shaped like the buttocks of a person getting a jab.
