MAPLE CREEK, Saskatchewan, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- A customized birthday cake a Canadian mom made for her nature-loving son's 4th birthday party features the image he specifically requested: the birth of a calf.
Jamie Packard of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, said in a Facebook post her son had been asking for a cake picturing a "cow having a calf" for several months leading up to his birthday.
Packard said she and her husband, Tyler, tried talking Benz into more traditional cake designs.
"We tried our best to persuade him, in fact I overheard Tyler say to Benz, 'a Thomas the Train cake would be cool. Would you like Mom to make one for your birthday?' To which he replied, 'I don't even watch Thomas the train.' We tried. So there I sat, Google imaging 'cow having a calf cake' and guess what, there were zero results, surprise, surprise! So as I'm molding rice crispy squares into little hooves I'm thinking to myself, no Mother is ever really prepared for this kind of stuff. And as I'm applying cherry pie filling as afterbirth, I found myself thinking.. Thank goodness it's only family coming to this party!"
Packard said her son, a huge fan of National Geographic veterinarian show The Incredible Dr. Pol, gave her a high-five when he saw the cake. She told Babble the other party guests "laughed hysterically" at the cake.
