This is our Easter lamb cake, made by my dad - pound cake with vanilla frosting.
I was out to Michigan on Friday, opening the house with Mom and she brought it with so I could bring it home. I did. By Saturday morning, I fulfilled the Family tradition - Lamb cake ears are always cut off first, enjoyed with my morning tea. My brother, sister & I used to fight over the ears.
Shortly after that:
This lamb cake is not going to last long around here.
Note to Dad: Easter cellophane 'grass' does NOT mix well with frosting. Just saying! The cake is yummy, though.
Easter was a bit different this year. I had a plan - it was a good plan. I have a lovely corned beef brisket in the fridge that I was going to cook up with some fixings. I started the day making yummy blueberry pancakes for Easter breakfast.
Then came the planned activity for the day.
Ugh! I had to wade through the pile of medical bills, statements, explanation of benefits - organizing and totaling them up (Yikes!). Lots to do before I could even start on the taxes. Before I knew it, the clock was striking 3 in the afternoon. The brisket was still in the fridge. Well, crud! So much for that plan.
We had left over Chinese food for dinner. Love that the DH is a tolerant man! At least we had a couple of yummy cheesecake slices for desert.
