Along with the cancellation of all major events and social gatherings, those with a birthday in March or April had to forgo major celebrations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Luckily, though, a local bakery has concocted a sweet way to celebrate those who commemorated a birthday during the coronavirus quarantine.
