  1. A long tradition in our family for over one hundred years. We use white frosting to cover the lamb. We sprinkle white coconut over it and tie a colorful paper bow around its neck. At the base we spread green coconut and place colorful jelly beans all around. The eyes are 1/2 a jellybean of whatever color you prefer.

    A wonderful gift for friends.
