Savage’s Bakery had fielded many a call for a birthday cake in the past, but Kim Kirkpatrick’s request was a little bit different than the usual. The mom had told the bakery’s co-owner, Elizabeth Scott, that her daughter, Amy, would soon be celebrating her 13th birthday.
Kirkpatrick gave Scott instructions about the type of cake she envisioned for Amy, but one comment in particular struck her. Upon hearing it, the wheels were already turning in the bakery-owner’s mind as she came up with an even better idea for the mom and daughter. What she did next was certainly a surprise to them both.
According to Kirkpatrick, the soon-to-be-teenager loved the little things. For one, Amy adored flowers, especially the summertime varieties that blossom in bright colors. The almost 13-year-old and her family lived on a farm and she had an affinity for the chickens living there, as well.
