I made this cake for a baby shower and everybody loved it. I wish I had pictures but it came out great. The mom to be didn't want to cut it. I find the Lamb pan easy to use. I will be making this cake and more Lamb cakes in the future.

This was a hit seller at the local Church Bazaar & Ladies Luncheon!
It auctioned off for $65.00 I just about fell over!
I made it as a Red Velvet Cake with Buttercream and Royal icing.
Can't wait to make it again THIS year.
