Hopefully someone who has this mold might still have the directions that it came with? I might be looking for an older version of the suggested recipes because although most people use this mold for cake, we have always used it for bread~ using Pillsbury Hot Roll mix...I have misplaced my recipe booklet and can't find the instructions for that recipe anywhere. Is anyone familiar with this? Thank you!
I LOVE that lamb mold. It has been in my family for at least 40 years. I make a coconut lamb cake for Easter every year!
Thank you for taking the time to post all those links but I was already at those sites last night and dozens more including You Tube, Pillsbury, and various recipe sites but no luck for the bread recipe. It seems everyone only uses the cake recipes. I am almost certain it is in the Wilton instructions booklet...it specifies using the Pillsbury Hot Roll mix in the box. The box comes with a yeast packet and we add some cinnamon too. It turns out really well~ ears never fall off either. I just can't remember how to roll out the dough or how long to bake it and at what temp...it's such a cute mold. I have the one on the Lehmans site.
I actually have the old Kaiser lamb mold and have used white almond bark to make a candy lamb with it. Never did anything with hot roll mix of any sort, but it sounds like a good idea.
This is absolutely not the sort of lamb cake that comes out of those molds, but I thought this was adorable anyway. It does involve quite a bit of work, though:
When I've made the lamb cakes in the past, I thought they turned out best when the face was left frosted smooth and then the "fleece" was piped on the remainder of the coat with a rosette or other dimensional pattern. Couple of chocolate candies for the eyes, they really did turn out looking like lambs.
My Kaiser mold is quite old. . .
Anyhoo, the Kaiser site has a ton of recipes:
Ree that is SOOO cute! thank you for posting that ...I've googled some pictures and I'm certain that it must be the Wilton's directions booklet for one of the older (70's?) version of the lamb cake mold. I wish I could find mine...on the website (Wilton) now it only says to use your 'favorite' bread recipe.
I have a mold that is very old. Here is what I do. I buy the Dromedary pound cake mix. Follow the directions. Fill the large half and put the small one on top. Easy. Cook at 350 for about 40 minutes. I forgot to say to butter and flour the pan very well especially the ears.
