Easter Coconut Lamb Cake - It's A Family Tradition

One of my favorite childhood memories was seeing a white lamb formed cake sitting on the dessert table at Easter. This was my mom's pride and joy and something us kids looked forward to every year. Except maybe the year when I watched her put it together using toothpicks to hold the head together (she didn't use enough batter in the mold and the head was a bit on the thin side and broke into pieces as she tried to frost it).  As I mentioned in a previous post, this traumatic event sent me into years of therapy (chuckle).  Here is a photo that I found when I googled lamb cake that most resembles my mom's.

But I couldn't stop with this after seeing the next several photos featuring the lamb cake mold:

For some reason, this one reminds me of Richard Simmons.


And this one is the spittin image of Lamb Chops from the 1950's television series.

This one rather scared me ... did they run out of frosting or were they trying for another animal image?

And this would be an albino lamb ?

Only her hairdresser knows for sure!

And this looks exactly like my cousin's Chiuaua!

But however you choose to decorate your lamb cake this year, I hope your Easter is a blessed one!

It was fun to surprise everyone with keeepig the lamb on our Easter table. Ok, so I cheated and stuffed the mold with Rice Krispie treats instead of cake batter. No one seamed to mind though :)
