Lamb And Sheep Dessert Ideas

In keeping with our “Focus on the Lamb, not the Bunny” Easter theme, I wanted to make some actual edible lamb treats of some kind for Easter. The food industry would like to pull the wool over our eyes and lead us to believe that we can’t make a lamb cake without store-bought mold, but we know there are greener pastures, right? Because I don’t have a lamb cake mold, I started thinking… what kind of ba-a-a-rillant lamb desserts or Easter food could you make without a lamb mold of any kind? The internet actually turned up many answers to my sheepish question, so I herded some of them together for Ewe! (Ok, ok, I’ll stop with the ba-a-ad lamb puns and get on with the ideas now). 😉

Not only do I not have a lamb cake mold, but I don’t have a lamb butter mold either. If you want a butter lamb and don’t have a mold, you still have a few options.
 First, find directions on making a
free form butter lamb on Taste of Home.

Also, check out your local grocery store because
it turns out they sell butter already shaped like a lamb!
I found these at Giant, and heard they were at Wegman’s, too.

I can think of many foods that seem ideal for decorating edible sheep, including popcorn, marshmallows, shredded coconut, and squirty whipped cream. Hope your Easter prep is going well! Worthy is the Lamb! 🙂
