My Mom made this Lamb Cake every year for Easter, but she made it with Pound Cake and Buttercream Frosting. Carrot Cake is my favorite cake so I changed it up and make mine with Carrot Cake and Cream Cheese Frosting. Mom Mom still makes this cake for Easter every year, even though she’s now in her 80’s! I hope to be like her when I grow up 😉
Feel free to use any of your favorite cakes in this cake pan. One year my husband wanted me to make red velvet cake so it would look like blood when you cut into it. None of us were a fan of that. But he’s a jokester and thought it would be funny. I have stuck with carrot cake ever since.
If you are using my Carrot Cake recipe (link provided) note that the amount of batter this recipe makes will make this cake, plus another 8″ square pan, so 2 cakes with 1 batch 🙂 And the frosting recipe is enough for both of the cakes.
The mold is from Nordic Ware and can be found on Amazon.
