#88 Lamb Pound Cake

Found a fabulous pound cake recipe - FINALLY!

Cream together:
1 cup butter, softened
3 cups sugar
6 eggs

Then add:
3 cups flour
1 cup sour cream (full fat!)
2 tsp vanilla extract

Combine until well mixed.

Fill a Wilton Lamb Mold to brimming full.  There will be enough left to make a loaf as well.
Tie the mold together with baking twine or wire to keep it from moving when the cake rises.

Bake at 325 degrees for about 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Lay lamb on his face and remove string/wire.  Remove back of mold and allow to cool about 10 minutes.  Replace back of mold and flip.  Remove front of mold and allow to cool another 10 minutes.  Remove lamb from mold and allow to completely cool at least one hour before frosting.
Use Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe sprinkled with sweetened, shredded coconut for a fabulous taste sensation!

Next year I will work on getting the decorations pretty.  This year I am just happy for a fabulous taste!
