In the beginning was the lamb cake ...

And the lamb cake was with Team Odell and the lamb cake was demonic.

And after many years of anticipating the coming of the demon lamb cake from afar, I decided to make my own.

Cake pan acquired.  Is it me, or is there something a little Cylon-ish about it?

By your command.
Mixing up the guts.  Red velvet, naturally.

Greasing up the innards.

Into the tomb with you!

The cake pan is empty.  The lamb has risen.

Flocking the lamb.  I used a recipe I found online called "that's the best frosting I've ever had".  Shame on me for not testing it out first, because no.  No, it isn't.  If that's the best frosting you've ever had, you haven't eaten nearly enough cake in your life.  Fact.  And to be fair, it wasn't bad, it was just medium, with a texture very much like that of whipped cream icing.  Not a big fan.  I would have been better off with a 7-minute frosting or the classic old school combo or shortening and powdered sugar.  Next year I'll know.

And now the most important part of the cake.  That which puts the demon in the demon lamb cake - the eyes.

Nice try, but not quite right.
I liked the idea of using yellow flecked jelly beans, but the execution was wrong.  There's a reason you should only use maraschino cherries for the eyes ...

Demon lamb cake weeps for you.

Demon lamb cake and its spider cupcake minions.  KNEEL BEFORE THE DEMON LAMB CAKE!

Demon lamb cake can also be benevolent.  Please, enjoy an appetizer while the main course is being prepared.  Another deviled egg?

The lamb has fallen.  The lamb will rise again.

I feel like maybe you should have gotten Jim Caviezel to play your demon lamb cake because that was pretty much like going through the Stations of the Cross. You're sick and I love it.
