Over the past couple months, I have been working with the talented editors over at Better Homes and Gardens. They initiated a Pretty Food program, asking some of their favorite bloggers to create decorative food and desserts. These new party-ready treats are perfect for any spring celebration or birthday and have easy step-by-step tutorials to go with each project. I am so honored to be a part of this program, and I am excited to share some of my newest designs! Just in time for Easter, I created this Lamb Cake. Surely you can make a little lamb cake any time of the year, but how cute would this cake be at your next spring celebration or brunch? Starting with just a round cake iced in plain buttercream or fondant, this cake tutorial transforms a basic cake into a stunning show-stopper.
I used a Cornelli lace pattern to give the lamb texture and to resemble fur. Easy fondant cut-outs create the heart nose and sparkling eyes. I love how the little eye lashes give the lamb so much personality. So sweet, right?
