San Francisco's Depressed Bake Shop Sells Only Gray Cakes

By: Lawrence Bonk

Sometimes life isn't all sunshine and roses. Sometimes it's gray, rainy days and whatever the opposite of roses is (weeds?) For happier times, we have every single bakery on earth. For those horrible just-don't-wanna-get-out-of-bed days we now have one bakery in San Francisco.

Introducing The Depressed Bake Shop, a pop-up bakery devoted to spreading awareness about mental illness.

Proceeds will benefit  Queer Lifespace, a San Francisco-based counseling agency.
