For most of the world the Osterlamm is just a delicious treat but in Germany it has more importance for those who believe in Jesus. A lamb is sacrificed at Easter, but baked in commemoration of the resurrection, a cake in the shape of an Easter lamb.
In the weeks preceding Easter, each bakery bakes and sells hundreds of these cakes. Some are covered in powdered sugar, some a lemon glaze and some even cover them in chocolate , we like ours plain!
Our daughter loves to bake! So we let her bake this Easter Lamb cake from start to finish.
