Isn't it CUTE?!?!
This was my first attempt at making a lamb out of butter. I decided I wanted to make one while searching online for various lamb recipes, when Charlotte and I were trying to choose one for our first Good Shepherd's Garden Party.
At first I ran across this beautiful mold, but it is definitely out of my budget, so I ended up purchasing this one for less than $10 (including shipping) on ebay. It is also available at Monastery Greetings and the Polish Art Center.
I can't tell you how EASY it was to make! All I did was fill each side of the mold with softened butter, clamp both sides together, and place it in the freezer for an hour. I didn't do a very good job of making sure I had the nose filled in all the way, but I still think it turned out darling.
Taste of Home does have directions for making a Lamb out of butter without a mold, but I don't think it is quite as cute. Nevertheless, it is still a great, last minute, option if you'd like to make one for Easter.
Apparently you can also make Chocolate Lambs with the mold as well, but since I am planning on baking a Lamb Cake for Easter with our new pan, I think I'll save the chocolate lambs for another time.Pin It
