A few weeks ago, I was in Connecticut with my friend, Christine, and we found a Wilton baking pan in the shape of a lamb. It was quite a find at only $5.99, and I knew I had to buy it because my niece’s first birthday (which is coming up in a couple of weeks) will feature lots of lambs…probably some monkeys too.
I bought her this lamb shortly after she was born, and she seems to love it which makes me very happy. 🙂 I love to bake so I decided to give this 3-D cake a try. And while it’s far from perfect, with a little improvement I think it could be pretty cute. 🙂
Obviously, cake decorating is new for me. I enjoy decorating cookies, but I’m hardly a pro. Does anyone have a suggestion for the face? I plan to put green coconut on the platter to make it look as though the lamb is laying on grass, but I’m not sure what to do about the face. hehe
I’ll try this again over the weekend because I thinkmy boyfriend’s nieces will love it. I hope to improve on it by then. 😉 This is just another reminder that things that are worth while often require extra effort.
I cannot wait to see my adorable little niece. I miss her everyday. And I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of my family just as much…:) I’m looking forward to shopping and baking with my sister, eating onion rings with my brother-in-law and bugging my parents to “Party Off The Pounds” with Richard Simmons and me. I’m also looking forward to walks through scenic Colorado and just being there with my family. It’s going to be a great week even if we have to buy a cake with a lamb on it. 😉
