Personal Notes:
We all remember this cake sitting so happily in the middle of Grandma's table for Easter Sunday coffee. Don't forget to tint coconut green, so the lamb is tucked in grass and surround the lamb with jelly beans too! Aunt Sheryl and Aunt Laurel Ann each have a lamb cake mold, that I am sure they will lend you.
