I'm gonna tell you how
not bright I am. On my information page, I listed Lemon Curd as a filling option for my cakes. Well, the honest truth is, I've never made lemon curd...heck, I've never even tasted lemon curd. But I love me some lemon, so I wanted to include it as an option and maybe one day make it.
Well... in true "Rose fashion"... I got an order for a cake with lemon curd filling.... before I ever got around to making or trying it myself!
So what did I do? I made some today! And it's so yummy (I had one tiny taste - even though I'm on a sugar fast, I cannot send out a cake with a filling that I didn't even taste!!). I have to say... by the end of this week (my 40 day sugar fast ends Thursday), I will have had a lemon cake with lemon curd and cream cheese filling... yes I
Anyway, this filling is so easy to make and if you like lemon, it's a perfect addition to a vanilla or lemon cake... or cupcake!! If you've never had lemon curd, it's a soft and creamy, thick, yet velvety filling... it's tart and sweet and citrus-y... and just so wonderful!!
See those tiny flecks of lemon zest... mmmm!!!
So, here's the recipe! It's super easy to make and requires no special ingredients or techniques!! If you're in the mood for an easy & delicious cake... definitely try out my Lemon Icebox Cake with Lemon Curd and Cream Cheese Frosting or my Lemon Kissed Cupcakes!
But before I give that to you... have you ever made lemon curd? Ever eaten it? What do you use it on or in?Print
