Immigrant Foodways: Easter Lamb Cake March 30 Many Czechs, Slovaks, and Czech/Slovak Americans have a feast celebrating Easter that is centered around lamb and eggs – both are symbols of spring and rebirth. Traditionally, people would have lamb, but if you couldn’t afford that they would make lamb cake. Of course, this is the part that got passed down through the generations. Today we will be learning how to make and decorate our own lamb cake!
