A Toronto bakery shop is the talk of the town thanks to its decorating class that lets you put your artistic twist on its miniature sized cakes. One Pound is a Korean-inspired bakery that’s been going viral because of its customized designs featuring delicious buttercream art. According to its website, the owner, a George Brown graduate, wanted to provide unique and personal cakes for each customer, along with detailed consultations. However, earlier this year, the company began taking things up a notch and introduced decorating classes. This soon became a hit and it has become increasingly difficult to get your hands on a reservation.

More than half (54 per cent) of workers with disabilities don’t feel enabled by their employer to “reach their full potential in the workplace,” according to a survey from George Brown College. The survey, which polled more than 900 Canadian workers with disabilities, found just a third (32 per cent) said their employer was very helpful and supportive. Among respondents who questioned the type of support they received, 34 per cent said they saw their managers as “somewhat helpful and supportive,” while one in five (20 per cent) said their organization was “not at all” helpful.
