Easter Lamb Cake Recipe Ingredients:
– 2-piece aluminum lamb mold
– Your favorite pound cake recipe or one box of white or yellow flavored cake mix (follow directions on box)
– Your favorite buttercream frosting recipe or one can of your favorite white frosting
– 1 12oz bag of sweetened flaked coconut
– 1 bag of jelly beans
– 1 bag of colored Easter eggs
– Non-stick cooking spray
Cooking and Prepration Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Separate the two-piece lamb mold and generously spray the inside of both pieces with non-stick baking spray. *Note: There will be a vent hole in one side of the lamb mold, be sure to fill the opposite side with batter.
3. Pour batter into one side of the lamb mold that does have the vent hole.
4. Place the opposite side of the mold on top of the batter, make sure it is secure.
5. Carefully place the lamb mold in preheated oven with vent hole facing up.
6. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into vent hole comes out clean.
7. Let the cake cool in the pan at least 15 minutes before removing the top. It is best to wait until the cake is completely cooled before carefully removing from the pan— take extra care with the head and ears.
8. Transfer cooled lamb cake to a platter and carefully frost your cake, taking extra care around the head and ears. Cover entire cake with flaked coconut and use jelly beans to make two eyes, a nose and mouth.
9. Surround your lamb with colored Easter grass and decorate with colored Easter eggs, jelly beans or any fun colored candy.
Enjoy! Happy Easter from Granite Transformations!
