Erin's Birthday Surprise!

Erin's really good friend threw her a surprise birthday party tonight. It was so much fun! The best part was that she didn't even have a clue that it was going to happen. She was really surprised.

Her friend organized the entire thing, and asked me if I would make the cake. She said she had a poem that she wanted me to make the cake around. So, you have to read the poem for this cake to make sense.

Erin was just 8 years old
She wanted to be 9.
Her friend held a birthday party so we'd know
Her birthday had arrived.

Her mother made a birthday cake
Decorated fine,
A park, a stream, a dog, a girl
All having a great time.

Then your mother put a number on
To show the birthday year.

Oh, no! In icing pink and sweet
It says you're 8, not 9!

So now you must be 8 again
Until next May, and so
Just go to sleep and do not eat
Because you must not grow.

When Erin's birthday comes again
In the year 2010
Should she turn 9 at last, or skip ahead,
Should she be 10 then?

Wow Lynette! You amaze me, I really want to take some of the classes, but I seriously doubt I'll come away from them with anything near your talent! It all look awesome!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIN!!! I totally forgot what the date is today, or even what month it is for that matter. What an awesome cake, and way cute poem! That was so nice of your friend to do. Was she surprised by the party, or did she figure it out? How in the world did you make the cake without her knowing?! You rock!

Very cute cake! ( Happy birthday Erin!) I'll bet you wouldn't mind if she stays 8. I have a few kids I wish were still 8.
