More Vintage Easter Greeting Cards, Complete With The Easter Rooster!

basket-bunny001Happy Easter, all!  I love this holiday.  Not just because of all the great food and decorations, but also because it is really a sign that spring will be here soon!

I am in the middle of baking the  lamb-shaped cake that I always make every Easter. It is really special to me, because I make it in the same pan that my Great-Aunt used to make it in so many years ago. Her lamb cakes were always so very, very good. I have changed them a bit, I make carrot cake instead of a pound cake, cream cheese frosting instead of buttercream, but I still use the exact same pan.

Like an idiot!

Every year the ears fall off my cake.  Every bleeping year. You would think I learn, but I don’t.  I do the same thing, forgetting about the ears until they get stuck in the pan and crack off. In fact, the reason I am doing this post right now is that I just took the cakes out of the pans, and the ears fell off.  So, instead of throwing things and swearing, I am taking a break to post some vintage cards. 

I will post the pictures of the lamb cake’s construction later next week, when I am a little calmer. halmark-duck-51001

Super cute Hallmark card from 1949. I love the flower umbrella and the gingham bow. girl-feeding-lamb001Another super cute Hallmark card from 1949. The lamb is so sweet in this card!  Okay…irritation at lamb cake is fading…easter-rooster001And here is an adorable Easter….rooster?  What? It reminds me of those Cadbury Egg commercials. Oh well, I will just go with it. Ladies and Gentlemen, The Easter Rooster!  What would we do without him?
