  1. Is this a German tradition? In Chicago, lamb cakes at Easter are everywhere. Other parts of the USA, nobody knew of this. Do you see this in Germany?

  2. Catheriine, my understanding is that it was originated by the polish people Like anything else ,a good thing,everyone else wants to join in on the bandwagon,even the Italians.
