Savage’s Bakery had fielded plenty of calls for birthday cakes in the past, but Kim Kirkpatrick’s request was a little bit different to usual. You see, 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 that she had envisioned for Amy, but one comment in particular struck the baker. 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. And what she did next was certainly a surprise to them both.
According to Kirkpatrick, the soon-to-be-teenager appreciated the little things, particularly in nature. Amy adored flowers, for one, especially the summertime varieties that blossom in bright colors. The almost 13-year-old and her family lived on a farm, mind you, so she had access to the great outdoors. And she had an affinity for the chickens living there as well.
