A German Easter Lamb Cake is the centerpiece and dessert on many tables at Easter. The sweet lamb, representing the Lamb of God, is baked into a lamb shaped mold… then decorated with either a simple sprinkling of powdered sugar, or in some homes, white frosting. In general, the cake is a pound cake, sometimes flavored with ground nuts.

You can bake your own Easter Lamb Cake… all you need is a recipe, a mold, and a few little tips that will insure success.

Surround the Easter Lamb Cake with colored eggs for a beautiful centerpiece.

Tips to insure Easter Lamb Cake Success

  1. Reinforce the structure of the lamb by laying a few toothpicks or a wooden skewer up its neck before baking. This will help the head stay on. Toothpicks going across the head to the ears will help too.
  2. Attach the top of the mold to the bottom with a clamp or band before baking. This will insure that the batter rises up to fill the top pan, and doesn’t just knock it aside.
  3. Don’t take the cake out Early!
  4. Loosen the edges completely before trying to remove it from the pan
  5. Smooth the bottom of the lamb, so you have a good base (just trim off any bits)

  1. I have an antique cast iron lamb pan. It looks pretty old. Is there away to use the pan again to bake a cake in?
