On a Saturday morning, I decided to bake
For my wonderful nephew, a big Lorax cake.
He was turning seven and was a Suess fan
So got my round pans and trusty ball pan.
I went straight to work by making the batter
I whipped it up fast, it began to splatter
I had to go fast, I couldn’t be late
Not being on time seemed always my fate.
I stacked the round cakes with the ball cake on top
I was making and baking and cleaning non-stop.
Using orange food color I tinted the icing
With spatula in hand I began frosting.
Yellow for mustache and eyebrows and aqua for eyes
Arms and legs made of Starbursts were molded to size.
I had to use skewers to hold up his arms
I positioned them carefully to cross his forearms.
I also baked cupcakes to help keep upright
Cotton candy Truffula trees, oh my what a sight!
Making the Lorax was such a delight
To see all the kids smiling big and so bright!
