The Birthday Cake

The Birthday Cake

My daughter's husband baked a cake

for her on her birthday,

she went home for some reason

and there that big cake lay.

She wasn't home for very long,

she stayed for just a while,

but I am sure that fresh baked cake

to her face brought a huge smile.

Well when she returned home again,

she had to smile once more,

that 9" by 13" cake she saw

was different than before.

This cake was in an oblong shape,

when he first got it done,

now she sees this cake again

shaped like a small round sun.

It had some jagged edges

she thought, "Sun rays they must be,"

and thinking, "My three boys

helped decorate this cake for me."

Frosted with bright yellow

now this masterpiece was done,

this 9" by 13" cake

that turned into the sun;

With "Happy Birthday Sheryl,"

written neatly on this cake,

she thought, "That must have taken quite some time

for all of them to make."

Then asking if she saw her cake,

Bri asked her if she knew,

exactly what had happened

and what his dad had to do?

She told him she just figured

they had all helped decorate,

but the real truth was something

she did not anticipate.

Dad wanted it to cool down fast

to put the frosting on,

but when he brought the cake back in,

half of it was gone.

Out on the deck was Girlie,

their fuzzy old sheep dog,

but she ate only half the cake

not wanting to be a hog.

By cutting around what Girlie ate,

he salvaged what he could,

and though I didn't see this cake

I thought he did quite good.

So now you know the story

about this cake when done,

how it went from an oblong cake

into a small cute rounded sun.

And after hearing all of this,

it wasn't too hard to decide,

that I should write this story

cause I laughed until I cried.
