"When I was young, every Easter my grandmother would make this wonderful lamb cake in an old cast iron mold that she'd had since the 1950's. After the cake cooled, it was my duty to decorate the cake. What fun I had creating my masterpiece with frosting, coconut and jelly beans!" — Joanie

Awesome! This was wonderful and exactly what I was looking for. I'm kind of mold-stupid so I had to make it in two halves and then stick 'em together w/ frosting, but my family ate the whole thing. :) I used a homemade german chocolate frosting... Thanks for the great recipie!
The perfect pound cake - thank you for sharing the recipe.
My lamb cake mol is very old, bought for my first Easter. I thought I try a new recipe having always used a doctored box cake. I was surprised at the left over batter, enough to fill a bunt pan.
