Whew!! The Eight Days of Lamb Cakes has come to a close and was it ever fun! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed, commented and generally followed along as I worked my way from last year’s lamb cake disaster to finding my Grandmother’s lamb cake (the Renalde Lamb Cake). Thanks in particular to:

Martha K., Alania and the Wall Street Journal, The Midland Daily News and Lori Qualls, Anita and Howard from Q90.1 Delta College Public Radio, Amanda and Joy from Wisconsin Public Radio, The Budd Family, Tom S., Marilyn Z, The Pope Family, The Gaisser Family, Trish S., Joan C., J. Albin, Eartha Kitsch and anyone who sent me a recipe or a tip, and anyone I met or spoke with on my lamb cake adventure!


I am excited to tell you that my radio interview on the Joy Cardin show on Wisconsin Public Radio is now online. It was a tremendous privilege to be able to talk with Joy and all her wonderful listeners about vintage cooking and recipes. You can listen to it here on Joy’s audio archives.  I am on Thursday, 4/5/2012 at 8:00 am, show 120405C about vintage Easter recipes. Just in case you don’t recognize me, I am the one who said “Um” too many times!

I was also featured in the Midland Daily News on Easter Sunday, with some cute pictures of me decorating a lamb cake. If you haven’t seen the article yet, please go and check it out!

Also, thanks to everyone who sent me a lamb cake picture!  I loved to see all of your little lambs so much I decided to put them up in a little gallery.  If you want to send me a picture of your lamb cake, please do! Email it to me at ruth@midcenturymenu.com and I will add it to the gallery.

Thanks again, everyone, and let me know how your Easter lambs turned out in the comments!
