My customer didn't request lemon curd. She wants lemon cake for her son's grooms cake. She works with my daughterso I was just thinking about making it a little more special by using the lemon curd for filling.If a customer requested something special I would never think of substituting without discussing it with them first.Again, thanks for all the input.Diane
Even with the lemon curd being "cooked" it still needs refrigeration after filling the cake? I don't have room torefrigerate the whole cake soooo......Thanks Loucinda for the suggestion of using pie filling. That might have to be my plan B.Thanks everyone for the help.Diane
Do I have to refrigerate the cake AFTER it's decorated? All the recipes sayto refrigerate the lemon curd after its made up to 2 weeks. But if I fill and decorate tomorrow night for Saturday wedding will it be OK without refrigerating?TIA,Diane
