It's Lamb Cake time!
The origins of the Easter lamb cake are unclear, but it is known that the custom of using this type of cake either on Easter Sunday or Good Friday began in Europe at least 100 years ago.
Traditionally, this cake is in the shape of a lamb lying down, which is meant to symbolize the Lamb of God, another name for Jesus Christ.
