Make a lamb out of butter for your Easter table. You need 4 sticks of butter or margarine (softened) and a potato ricer (or a play dough thing that makes hair).
- Bend one stick like arc and place on a plate.
- Take 2/3 of a stick and bend a small piece over for the nose and push on the top to make an indent for the ears.
- Place all that on the left corner of the whole stick that is on the plate.
- With the leftover 1/3 cut into 4 legs.
- Now with the remaining 2 sticks you make "fur" by pushing the butter through the ricer and attach onto the body and part of the legs (don't cover the face or ears).
- Then use 2 cloves (or whole pepper) for eyes and parsley in the mouth.

I found a cheaper way for a buttered lamb. I used margarine! Here is the margarine lamb I made for pennies. Peppercorn for eyes, red tie, and a stick of margarine!
