It was a great Easter! Thank you so very, very much to everyone who visited the blog, used the recipes, shared your recipes, commented, sent an email and especially those who submitted their lamb cake or bunny cake for this year’s gallery.  Every year I am thrilled by the excitement and friendliness and just plain cake-making fun that Easter brings out in all of us. And I had an extra thrill this year when I was mentioned in a lamb cake post on The Kitchn, so overall it was a great year for the lambs!  I hope you enjoy this year’s gallery (there are some great ones!), but first let’s announce some winners!

Congratulations, everyone! And what cute lambs. And I think this is the first year we’ve had a pink lamb as a winner! I have sent each of the winners message or email, and if you are a winner and you haven’t gotten a message from me, please email me at ruth@midcenturymenu.com and send me your mailing address!

So here’s the gallery for 2016, and I hope you guys enjoy it. If you are curious, you can re-visit the galleries from 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012 as well. Happy Easter!
