A lamb for Easter! – Recipe

Jesus Christ takes the guilt and sin of the people and dies for them to save us humans. Like a lamb being led to the slaughterhouse. We remember this symbolism each time the Eucharist is celebrated: breaking the bread after the salutation, the “Agnus Dei,” ” Lamb of God,” is prayed.

In memory of Jesus Christ and the Good News of his resurrection, white lambs are being baked at Easter. The color stands for innocence. In many communities, the Easter lambs are blessed after the Easter Vigil.

The lamb can be represented in different ways. We have tried two variants for you: cake pop lambs – and the traditional Easter lamb shape.
