Today I want to give a quick shout out to the Depressed Cake Shop! It is a grassroots organization that facilitates pop-ups worldwide that sell customized baked goods as a way to get people talking about mental illness.
The baked goods are most often gray to signify the gray cloud that can descend over a beautiful world when someone is struggling with mental health issues and have a pop of color to symbolize hope. Many of the cakes are designed and donated by bakers who had personal experience with depression, and they use their creations to express their struggles with and experiences of their illnesses.
Where there is cake, there is hope. And there is always cake.
