Lamb Cake

Happy Easter! My lamb cake was a bit success.  Be sure to follow these tips to have a 3-D cake:

  • Use a pound cake recipe or box mix.  
  • Grease the pan with Crisco, then coat with flour
  • Place empty cake base onto a cookie sheet - this will catch any overflow when it bakes.
  • Fill the bottom section of the cake pan with batter right to the rim, then set the cake lid on top
  • Tie cake pan pieces together with cooking twine
  • When cooking time is up, allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes before cutting the twine and removing the top cake pan
  • Allow the cake to cool with the lid off for 10 more minutes.
  • Now put the lid back on and gently turn the cake over
  • Remove the other side of the cake pan. Allow to cool
  • Now that the cake is mostly cool, remove the cake pan and stand the lamb up on the platter you want to serve from.
  • Don't frost until cake is completely cool.
Good luck!
