Easter's Sweeter With Lamb, Bunny, & Easter Basket Cakes

Brighten your Easter table with these fun and creative cakes decorated like lambs, bunnies, and Easter baskets.

Lamb Cakes

Lamb cakes are an Easter tradition that symbolizes spring and fertility. You can still find the molds in stores. The cakes are traditionally made with pound cake but your favorite cake mix will work just as well. Use shredded coconut to make the lamb's white and wooly coat.

"This recipe is a godsend. It comes out as a nice dense pound cake that is perfect for frosting and decorating. It just got out of the oven and was unmolded PERFECTLY." -- Patrick Henry

Bunny Cakes

Everyone wonders what the connection is between Easter and bunnies. Have some cake while you're coming up with your own explanation.

Easy Bunny Cake

"We make this every year for Easter, the kids love it! I outline the bowtie in chocolate chips to define it a little more and then fill it in with the pink tinted coconut. I also spread green tinted coconut around the edges of the cake on the cookie sheet to give it alittle more color." -- Epearce

Easter Carrot Cakes

Bunnies love carrots. Maybe that's why carrot cakes are so popular at Easter time. Certainly they make a lovely addition to the brunch buffet. Decorate with orange frosting "carrots" for a festive look.

Easter Basket Cakes

Frost the cake. Then take shredded coconut and dye it green; sprinkle the "grass" on top of the frosting. Place candies in the center like an Easter basket. Use candy and marshmallows to make cute animal faces or flowers.

Easter Basket Cake

"Very festive for the Easter holiday! Instead of using the candy to decorate the basket, I've also used milk chocolate icing or colored the vanilla icing to match the handle then used a fork to gently rake a basket type woven look into the sides of the cake." -- Valerie Lynne
