Eid-ul-Adha Sheep Cake

This Tuesday, Muslims throughout the world celebrated Eid-ul-Adha, also known as, the Festival of Sacrifice. This Islamic holiday commemorates the sacrifice that the prophet Abraham was willing to make of his son Ishmael when Allah(God) commanded him to show his commitment towards him. By Allah's command, Abraham's son Ishmael was substituted by a lamb, and now every year, Muslims commemorate Abraham's sacrifice by slaughtering a sheep, lamb, goat, camel or cow....but most commonly, a sheep or a lamb.

So that's our history lesson for today. And now moving on to cake. What better cake to bring to a Eid party than a sheep cake? It's perfect. AND, for those who cringe at the mere thought of eating sheep organs/meat, aka myself, eating THIS sheep will only result in extreme satisfaction. And more trips to the gym.

Without further ado, I present to you...my favorite sheep to eat.
