Easter lamb


My Mother has this cast iron mold and I have fond memories of making this cake at Easter.
Coconut cake and jelly beans for the eyes and nose.
Look closely and see the little lamb on the counter. I spotted this image here last November.
Sandy, the owner of that sweet lamb lives here and she e-mailed me as in my comment I had left, "we made that lamb a white coconut cake at Easter and at Christmas it became chocolate Rudolph with a bright maraschino cherry for the nose."

Sandy, thanks for sharing and I hope you will show us your lamb cake completed~

Love a little lamp....and one topped with coconut and jelly beans would be the perfect Easter dessert.

Wishing you and your family a very happy, relaxing weekend!!!

Yum! I would love a little coconut cake and jelly beans, although the lamb cake could be just too cute to eat. And Rudolph too!

I hope that you and your family have a very happy and joy-filled Easter weekend. Have fun!

We all love their stuff!

Happy Easter to all of you!

what a beautiful mold. they don't make them like that anymore. our local antique shop has antique french chocolate molds that are truly works of art and cost thousands of dollars. i adore them. happy easter patricia.

My mom and grandmother used to make that same cake! I'd forgotten about it until now. What a lovely memory. Thanks!

I may have to revive the tradition for my children, but my baking skills aren't the best.

FYI your lamb mold is cast aluminum. I make on wtthmine every year. I even have 2 cast aluminum minis! Love your Rudolph idea!

My husband's grandmother had the same and all the birthday cakes for him and his brother when they were younger were the lambs! I made the same cake for my one-year old. He squealed with delight, then reached out and pulled the lamb's head off and smushed in his mouth. Yup, he became a chef!

I'd leave that wonderful little lamb out all year long so as to have a daily reminder of today's very special meaning...it's so sweet!
Wishing you and your family a perfect & lovely Easter weekend...
