Kids have a variety of interests.
Some are into trains. Some are into sports. Some love Sesame Street. Others can’t stop talking about Frozen.
Benz Packard, a resident of Saskatchewan, Canada, may be in an adorable and unique class by himself.
The four-year old celebrated a birthday this summer, asking his parents for an unusual cake in the process.
See, Benz likes to spend time at his aunt and uncle’s farm.
He helps milk cows there, he helps collect eggs, he hangs out with animals of all kinds.
So when mother Jamie Packard asked her son what kind of cake he would like for his birthday, he replied with what seemed like a very logical answer:
He wanted a cake that featured a cow giving birth.
No, really. This is what he asked for, as detailed (and pictured!) by Jamie in a Facebook post that has gone viral.
“For the last couple of months, Benz has been asking for a “cow having a calf” cake for his birthday,” Jamie wrote in her post.
“We tried out best to persuade him [otherwise], in fact I overheard Tyler say to Ben, “a Thomas the Train cake would be cool… would you like Mom to make one for your birthday?”
What did Benz think of this suggestion?
I don’t even watch Thomas the Train, he said.
“We tried,” Jamie continued.
“So there I sat, Google imagining “Cow having a calf cake” and guest what, there were zero results, surprise, surprise!
“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.
“And as I’m applying cherry pie filling as afterbirth, I found myself thinking… Thank goodness it’s only family coming to this party!”
This is simply amazing.
It may be our favorite story ever.
It’s definitely our favorite story ever about a mother baking an unusual cake for her son.
Of all the cake recipes out there, this one, yes, takes the cake.

Incredibly, there’s more animal vagina in the children’s cake above than any of the dessert items below:
