CINCINNATI — A lot of people are having a rough time with social distancing and quarantining right now, but Busken Bakery is trying to help people get through these tough times with their "quarantine cakes."

"Within the first day we sold out of 20," Busken Bakery Cookie Sales Ambassador Danielle Smith said. "The next day we kept getting calls; the phones were non-stop."

The cakes look like a roll of toilet paper with the words "Roll with it" printed on top. They are a play on how people bought huge stock piles of toilet paper when the coronavirus came to the United States.

"We sell about 50 a day," Smith said. "We're keeping our decorators busy."

The quarantine cakes cost about $19 and you can choose yellow, white or chocolate cake.
