2. See Chocolate Lamb Cake recipe for specific tested recipe for this pan.
3. When preparing pan, grease inside of molds (top and bottom half) with vegetable shortening or butter and dust with flour or cocoa.
4. Pour prepared batter in bottom half of mold, approximately 3 cups (the bottom half is the face of the lamb). Place top mold (back of lamb) on top, interlocking seams. IMPORTANT: make sure half with vent hole is on top to permit steam to escape).
