One of my mother-in-law’s annual Easter traditions is a cake in the shape of a lamb. She usually makes her cake in advance, and rather than traditional cake in the mold, she molds layers of ice cream, instead. Unfortunately, a few years ago, the freezer holding her already-completely-decorated lamb cake was accidentally unplugged, and she discovered her melted lamb just before Easter.
My sis-in-law and I jumped in and made our best replacement lamb (above), learning along the way that there are SO MANY TERRIFYING LAMB CAKES on the internet. I almost can’t recommend that you google it, but you know you want to. Anyway, just wanted to share my cakes from that year and last year (below), in case anyone is looking for a lamb cake that won’t scare the kids at your Easter celebration. My strategy: skip the face, add flowers.
