Hey guys,

 

it is the season of the bunnies and the daffodils and the eggs … oh and of the lamb cake.

 

As a lot of people made fun of me lately for bringing up my lamb cake. I decided to bake one to show all of you that this tradition is not only important but also delicious.

 

A bit of trivia: In Germany, a lamb is sacrificed at Easter, but baked in commemoration of the resurrection, a cake in the shape of an Easter lamb. In the weeks preceding Easter, each bakery bakes and sells hundreds of these cakes. Some are covered in powdered sugar, some a lemon glaze and some even cover them in chocolate and candies.

 

The only hurdle? I have never baked anything in my life before. So sit back and watch me giving birth to my very first (lamb) cake just for you.

10:22 am - Gathering ingredients

I have realised that I have nothing in my house that goes into cake. I shall be back in 10 - a quick trip to the market….

 

 

11.30 - Gathering Ingredients II

This took longer than expected - turns out that supermarkets don’t have a “exactly the ingredients you need for a lamb cake” isle. But I managed… here they are….

11.40 - In the mix

I realised I have nothing to mix the batter with - Using a smoothie maker now. Wish me luck…

12:01 pm - I am sweating

Baking is stressful - This might be the first and last lamb cake I will make.

 

12:05 pm - The mould

Key is the mould - I had to get this of Amazon. It needs a little dusting and cleaning - we have no idea where this has been…

12:08pm - Me and my big mouth

I wish I would have said nothing and let the cake slip but here we are - elbows deep in cake batter. Also may need to renovate kitchen.

 

12:15 pm - BURN

So the recipe calls for 180 degrees and I have a gas stove so I have no idea what to do. I figured I could do 45 minutes on a 7 or 10 minutes on 15.

1:00 pm - Definitely sacrificed a lamb

no comment - we shall see what it looks like once I take it out.

 

1:10 pm 😒

1:15 pm - I AM A GENIUS

Call me Gordon Ramsey - cake looks like a painting. I may have broke its neck but no one will know. She is beautiful. Everyone meet DOLLY…

 

 

1:35pm - Finishing Touches

Can’t send Dolly out without any make up on. So here we go. Made her extra pretty. She is beautiful, She is a Model, She is Linda Evangelista….

3:00pm

She is also a little dry …. I am going to buy some jam …

Looks ok @LukasB apart from the burnt edges. innocent

Will you be using buttercream anywhere on the lamb? Or icing?

Looks like you made a brave and reasonable attempt.

Well done and we await the verdict on what it tastes like
