This 11-Year-Old's Idea To Spread Joy During The Pandemic Turned Into A Small Business

Isn't she lovely!

Since the global pandemic forced many people to spend more time at home, they've come up with creative ways to spend their days. Eleven-year-old, London Warrick, used this time to create baked goods for her family and neighborhood. Seven months ago, the Willow Grove, Pennsylvania fifth-grader turned her hobby into a new business called Lovely London Delights.

"I started baking in May for Mother's Day," London told ABC 6. "I made a whole cake, and I sliced it, and I delivered it to mothers to make them happy. When I got back home, they were asking for whole cakes."

London's mother, Tramaine Warrick, said she told people that the baker they sought after was only 11, but they didn't care and just wanted more cake.

"From there, so many people we didn't know were finding out from other people, and they just started to ask us to order cakes," Tramaine said.

London has sold more than 200 cakes so far with her specialty, classic Bundt cake, baked with two secret ingredients.

The fifth-grader at Upper Moreland Intermediate School said she finds ways of juggling school and baking by filling orders on the weekend and when she has a break.

The young baker is also a budding philanthropist donating a portion of her proceeds to Gift of Life in memory of her grandfather, who had lung disease.

She told reporters her favorite subject is math, and she wants to go to Lincoln University for college.

We wish you the best of luck, London!
