Vintage Easter: Lamb Cakes
No dessert clearly defines Midwestern holiday food traditions like the Easter Lamb Cake. While the origins of these kitschy cake creations remain a mystery, herds most notably began forming around the 1950's and soon these little lambs became an Easter tradition in many midwestern German and Polish households.
Jarosch Bakery has offered Easter Lamb Cakes since opening our doors in 1959 and we've proudly shared our family's culinary custom with families around Chicagoland for the last 50 years. Whether you're new to the Easter Lamb phenomenon or have enjoyed them for decades, one thing is certain: Easter Lamb Cakes are as flavorful as they are fun!
Each lamb is comprised of our scratch-made yellow pound cake-- a dense yet tender dough with a slight hint of lemon to create a brightness that breaks through the richness and sweetness from all the butter and sugar. Choose from a variety of "furs:" Buttercream, Chocolate Buttercream, Colored Buttercream (pink, blue, yellow, or lavender), Chocolate Fondant, or the traditional White Coconut. The heads of the lambs are dipped in melted fondant for a clean, defined finish and tend to be the part fought over the most by the kids!
Add modern touch to your Easter feast with the colorful and sleek Easter Centerpiece Cake. Underneath the beautiful buttercream swirl of spring colors lies soft white vanilla cake layers with pink and purple buttercream filling for an added surprise when cutting the cake. Pixie Dust creates sparkle and a festive Easter sign finishes the overall holiday look.
Bring home a Large Bunny Cake to keep your Lamb Cake company! Choose from either buttery Yellow or tender Devil's Food Cake and an array of pastel buttercream "furs:" Blue, Yellow, Pink Lavender, Chocolate, or White. Serves 8-10
Make this Easter egg-stra special with a Large Egg Cake! These egg-straordinary egg-shaped cakes are made with two layers of tender yellow pound cake, buttercream filling, and iced with melted fondant in either Pink, Yellow, or Chocolate. Each egg is decorated with buttercream flowers and an Easter sign.
Give your Easter brunch a whimsical touch with our Easter Bunny Coffeecake! We shape our traditional, buttery Danish coffee cake dough into an Easter Bunny - complete with ears and a bow tie - and top it with crumbly streusel and a drizzle of classic icing. For a finishing touch, we draw on a face, ears, and the purple bow tie to create a fun character you and the kids will love to eat Easter morning!
