The eggs were boiled on Friday and Saturday(and wrapped) and the cake started on Saturday.
It is a tradition in our family to make a lamb cake at Easter(not every Easter, but at Easter). My Aunt Norine refused to eat it because she hated when we picked off the eyes(raisins) and nose(cherry half). I don't use those things. I usually use jelly beans but this year I am changing it up.
Here are the ingredients
Putting them together
Greased up. This part is super important. You don't want the cake sticking because then you get a messed up lamb.
I usually forget this part so this time I overcompensated.
Filled up, but not to the rim!!
And ready to go!!
In the oven
I tried making a small cake with the leftover batter, but it didn't come out right. The lamb did, though.
Despite a gash in the front
Time to decorate him!!
The lamb had a mishap with some falling dessert plates
Note: Corelle dishes can and do break under the right circumstances ie falling out of a cabinetand hitting the counter and sink.
Then, of course, we ate him and this is what we left
Oh, and guess who came back to visit his best pal for Easter ????
