Hi all,

What a wonderful and most informative site. I'm hoping to make a lamb cake for my 6 month old daughter's baptism in 2 wks. However, I'm open to any suggestions. Quick and easy would be preferable what with a busy life - 2 boys and a husband who travels a lot.

Two of the 35 guests has a severe peanut allergy. With this in mind, I am also looking for homemade recipes that are peanut safe.

Any and all suggestions are appreciated. TIA for your help!

Have a fantabulous day! : )

re: the peanuts, theres a post going on about this now, which is quite good for info. in some people the slightest trace of a nut will have serious consequences.
its not the recipe you need to worry about, its the ingredients and your home. a lot of ingredients are marked as not being made in a nut free environment, which means you cant take the chance for your friends.
you can scrub down your kitchen and equipment, and you can triple check the ingredients, but you need to ensure that while your friends know you have done your best, your kitchen is not nut free.

Hi & welcome to CC. I saw this cake and I really like it. You can make some sheep and keep them on the board.

Good day!

I want to thank you for responding so quickly to my quiry. I love your suggestions and ideas. I'm going to incorporate them all into one design. Hopefully, I will do them all justice. Just love the video about lamb making - too cute!!!!

I'm looking for a new cake recipe. I'd like to try something other than the standard choc. and vanilla. but that is a real crowd pleaser(catering to the masses). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Once again, thank you for your input. I'm getting excited about starting.

Have a super day!

Cheers : 0)

Wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to direct me to these super listings. This site is definitely addictive! I've been chasing my tail through endless searches but what you've provided has put it together in a nutshell and frankly, saved me some time.

The lambs are very cute. There are so many wonderful ideas that it's hard to choose. Regardless, I'm having fun searching while at the same time meeting new and friendly people.

Thanks again and have a great night or day, depending on where you live icon_wink.gif

If you decide to go with the sheep, you can add some white picket fenc-- that will give it a nice touch.

My sister's Kindy has just had to ban all cakes being brought in from home due to one of the children having a severe peanut allergy - he reacts to his skin even coming into contact with the slightest trace of peanut. Everyone knows to keep peanuts out of the centre and certainly no one baked a cake with peanuts in it but the problem was the teacher had to go through and verify that each of the individual ingredients in the cake were made in a nut-free environment and contained no traces of peanut which was very stressful. So, it probably depends on the degree of the nut allergy, but I'd suggest speaking to the parents of the children - they'll have a wealth of info at their fingertips if it is a severe allergy. By the way, I think my favourite lamb cake for the baptism is that one that beachcakes found.Good luck!
