Wearing His Spring Coat Cake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made 5 of these lamb cakes (with chocolate cake mixes) for my children and their families for Easter. Instead of using candy melts for the lamb's curly fleece, I used shredded coconut and for the eyes, ears, nose and mouth I used colored jelly beans - pink for the ears, black jelly beans for the eyes, nose and mouth. I used the Wilton buttercream icing for frosting the cake and then sprinkled the shredded coconut over the lamb. Each and every time the icing turned out perfect. I call it the 'no-fail buttercream icing". It was so easy to spread and held up so well. My children and grandchildren were very delighted with this cute lamb cake and really enjoyed its delicious taste. My sweet little 3-year old grandson found it irresistible to keep from sticking his fingers into the cake and sampling the icing. My daughter even put a photo of it on Facebook.
