Oh, Lord, I was so afraid that you meant a cake that actually had lamb meat in it. That would have been a great April Fool’s joke, for sure. Whew.
My wife is making lamb for dinner. I said uou made lamb cake and she thought meat loaf! Said yuck! if you could do jellied corn beef loaf why not lamb?
Ha!!! That would have been funny! Maybe next year. 🙂
i’ve been passed the lamb for the first time this year. I have researched and researched and landed on your website to guide. Ill let you know how it goes. My Nana passed it to us but she never actually baked it.
Just came across your blog when I was searching for lamb cake recipes. My grandmother used to make a lamb cake every Easter. I bought a pan off of Ebay several years ago to continue the tradition with my kids. I am visiting family and was surprised to find a lamb pan in my Mom’s basement so I am going to make one tomorrow. If it isn’t too hideous looking, I’ll send a picture even though my kids love it when it looks hideous!
