Some have been using it to spend more quality time with their family, some have picked up new hobbies that they’ve always wanted to try, some have started working out and some… well, apparently, some people have been taking this time as an opportunity to perfect their skills in making unsettling-looking eggs.

Recently, a Twitter user named Anna Hughes shared a post in which she told everyone about her quarantine mission.

Some people even suggested techniques to help others make their unsettling-looking eggs: “Suggestion here to up your unsettling egg game! First whisk the eggs, pour them in the pan, and let them cook until solid. Then add one more egg on the sides. Now flip the solid egg part over like an omelette so you have an omelette with a runny inside like a sunny side up egg!”

A new kind of birthday cake, what do you think?
