Happy (early) Easter to those who celebrate it! I spent my afternoon making this adorable fluffy lamb cake – this one is easy enough for even an adventurous beginner. I can’t take credit for the design (stumbled upon it on Pinterest), but had to make it after my nephew saw it and gave his seal of approval.
You’ll need to purchase or make your own cake/icing (Immaculate Baking Co. cake mixes may be worth trying if you’re short on time – the ingredients are simple and don’t include preservatives). Lyndsay from Coco Cake Land posted a great tutorial for decorating this cake on Handmade Charlotte.
In the spirit of saving time, I cut up marshmallows for the ears (rather than fondant), and melted chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth. I used a marshmallow for the nose as well, dabbing a little frosting on it and sprinkling with pink sugar. If you don’t have piping bags, cutting the corner of a Ziploc bag will work (just make sure to tape the corner to reinforce before you cut). Freezer bags are thicker and will work a bit better. I didn’t have the Wilton no. 22 tip, but used a similar star-shaped one and it worked great.
