Easter Dessert: Lamb Cake

I hope you still have room on your Easter Dessert menu to add one more treat! This Lamb Cake is simply adorable. I remember years ago the star of every Easter Dessert table was a Bunny Cake.  So when I spotted the Chubby Little Lamb Cake in a cookbook, I thought he would be fun to share with you!

He’s not difficult to make, but did take some time. Our family doesn’t like coconut, so I coated the Lamb Cake with White Chocolate Curls that I made with Wilton Candy Melts. The body is baked in a large bowl, two small bowls for the head and mini cupcakes for the top of the head, nose and tail. The face and ears are made with Starburst candy and M&M’s for the eyes, and a pretty ribbon to get him all ready for Easter Dinner.

How to make Chocolate Curls:

  1. Add 1 package of Wilton white candy melts and 2 tablespoons shortening to a medium bowl
  2. Melt in microwave about 2 minutes, stir candy until smooth
  3. Add a piece of parchment paper to a square dish
  4. Pour melted candy into dish and place in freezer for about 15 minutes
  5. Remove and let set out a couple minutes
  6. Using a potato peeler, shave off chocolate to form curls
  7. Store in fridge until ready to use

  8. Spray an oven-proof bowl with non-stick cooking spray for the body, 2 small bowls for the head and mini muffin tin
  9. Divide batter - you will need 5 mini cupcakes
  10. Bake and cool completely - baking time will depend on the size of bowls you are using, insert a toothpick into the center of the cakes to test

  12. Coat with small amount of frosting
