Does this icing crust?

By lemon curd, do you mean lemon pie filling or lemon pudding ? I would appreciate you letting me know, so that I may make this yummy looking recipe too. Thank you.
Lemon curd spread, I use the one from a jar by Dickonson's.. Curd is made from eggs & butter.. It's not from a pudding mix. (it's by the jams & jelly section)
I was looking for a lemon filling recipe and this looks like it might be just right. Do you refrigerate your cakes with this filling? I am going be covering it in fondant and then traveling for 1 1/2 hrs and want to make sure it's all in one piece and edible when I get there. Thanks for the recipe!
I used this for my 4 tier fondant cake, I refridgerated the cake overnight and it stayed nice & firm for 6 hours at room temp.
this recipe sounds so good. I think that it will go great with the Margarita cupcakes or cake I'm putting these two together.
I only had 2% milk, and no lemoncello, however I used "real" lemon juice & it has a hint of lemon taste. The consistency is good. Just what I was looking for - thank you!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this amazing recipe! I used it to fill cupcakes for a wedding.....everyone loved it. It was a hot humid July day outdoors and this recipe held up great. The texture is wonderful and the flavor is delicious.....my family loves this one! It's a Keeper!
