Ya know what's making a major comeback? Easter Lamb Cakes.
Growing up, my mom always made the Lamby Cake for Easter. It didn't quite look like this. Ours was white cake, white frosting, coconut covered with pink jellybeans for eyes. And we loved it. I know others of you grew up with the Betty Crocker Easter Bunny cake. Adorbs! But picking the Easter basket grass out of the frosting looks like a major pain in the bunny butt. Happy Easter, Everyone!

Nothing bums me out more than something that looks like cake, but isn't. On many of my speaking engagements for Finding Betty Crocker, this vintage Betty Crocker Party Sandwich Loaf was served. I pretended to be delighted, but I never ate a single bite.

In our archival research we unearthed a letter from the Betty Crocker radio show, "Magazine of the Air" inviting Frances Glessner Lee to be a guest on the show. (1949) Considering I've made documentary films about both Betty Crocker and Frances Glessner Lee, my mind is forever blown.
For the record, there was a carbon copy of the reply letter and Frances politely declined.
