Realistic Illusion Cakes Save A Hong Kong Bakery From Closure Due COVID-19

Published

Some people have certainly been affected economically by the pandemic. This situation is becoming worst as most countries are implementing lockdown in their countries.

To strive for a living in the pandemic requires effort and hard work. There is a saying by G. Michael Hopf, “hard times create strong men.” Two women from Hong Kong have proved this quote from their works.

Alison Chan and Cony Lam, founders of Dear Harley Cake Studio make an impressive jump to their business after being hit hard because of the pandemic. How they did it? They came out with a rare idea to create not just a normal cake, but a cake that looks like daily stuff such as slippers, remote controller, and mug.

They get the idea after making an illusion cake that looks like a banana for Alison’s nephew. The hyperrealistic cake was made using fondant and dark chocolate cake filled with Italian meringue buttercream. Amazingly, the illusion cake looks real enough to fool some people on social media.

Illusion cakes were their realization of things from everyday life. The price for each cake range from $1,500 and can reach up to $12,000.

Their cake has gained many interests from the customers. Alison said they hardly get any customers during March and April with only three to four orders per week. Since they came out with the new idea, the orders are reaching up to 15 orders weekly. She advised other businesses to come out with unique ideas to overcome current challenges.

(Video) Meet Zanziman Ellie, A Man With A Condition Called ‘Microcephaly’

Published

By

This Rwandan man named Zanziman Ellie willing to hikes several miles a day to avoid facing bullies that tortured him for his condition called microcephaly.

Microcephaly is a condition where the head (circumference) is smaller than normal. Microcephaly may be caused by genetic abnormalities or by drugs, alcohol, certain viruses, and toxins that are exposed to the fetus during pregnancy and damage the developing brain tissue.

The mother of Zanziman considered him a miracle after she had just lost five of her children in Rwanda – upset, she and her husband prayed to their God to give them a son, even saying that they wouldn’t mind an “abnormal child, as long as they don’t die.”

Nine months later, Ellie was born.

Originating from Rwanda, he is usually harassed by the villagers there because of his facial features. To escape the cruel villagers that bully him for being “different”, he hikes around 32 km a day.

While visiting Zanziman’s mother, she told that Zanziman is being mocked and criticized of almost every day.

Zanziman could not speak or communicate properly with the villagers, so he learned how to use his motor skills and runs away from the villagers to avoid getting himself getting bullied.

Having never been in school, Zanziman would travel around 236 km weekly and sometimes eat the grass from the jungle.

Zanziman is diagnosed with microcephaly, where the baby’s head is born much smaller than normal. This condition can lead to having learning difficulties or physical disabilities as they grow older. Usually, the baby would develop intellectual disabilities.

The scans during the pregnancy could pick up the signs of this condition, but there are no cure or treatment for it.

Microcephaly often happens to children whose mothers are affected by the Zika virus.

Ellie’s mother has been nothing but loving and caring for her son, but her situation has worsened and she now is struggling to bring food to the table.

A GoFundMe fundraiser has been set up to help this family eat and live properly. Click HERE if you want to donate to the family.
