    Enjoyed your tips on making a lamb cake – wish I had paid more attention to similar tips I’ve seen online. Made a lamb cake today with a vintage aluminum pan. It has no vent for steam or to check doneness. I used a strawberry cake mix and add-ins to make it a pound cake. Tied the halves together, had a little leakage but not much. When I first took the top piece (the back) off, I saw that the cake had shrunk slightly as it cooled. By the time the cake had completely cooled, the poor little lamb was as thick as one half of the mold. Not sure why. I had filled it to the rim of the bottom half. Any advice? Also, lost the head after it was frosted and on display as my centerpiece. Hubby helped me put it back on with plastic coffee stirrers, which we learned will not hold the head on. Ended up leaving the head next to the body, to look like a lamb laying down completely, using a long bamboo skewer threaded through the left ear, which had also fallen off, to the right rear corner of the lamb. This was my first attempt, but will try again next spring. Not stressing about it. The grand kids will love it. It’s not my only dessert, so we’ll be OK for Easter dinner tomorrow.
