Birthdays are the one day a year we can be truly selfish and ask for anything we want.
Benz Packard recently turned four years old and he had an extremely unusual request — a birthday cake featuring a cow giving birth!
A little bit of backstory…Benz lives in Canada and loves spending the day working at his aunt and uncle’s ranch, or visiting his grandparents’ farm.
His favorite TV show? “The Incredible Dr. Pol,” a National Geographic show about a Dutch veterinarian who cares for large farm animals.
Benz’s mother, bless her heart, worked her magic and created an almost too-real depiction.
“So as I’m moulding rice crispy squares into little hooves I’m thinking to myself, no mother is ever really prepared for this kind of stuff,” Benz’s mother posted on Facebook. “And as I’m applying cherry pie filling as afterbirth, I found myself thinking…Thank goodness it’s only family coming to this party!”
