What frosting to use with Lemon Cake

post #1 of 8

Hi,

I'm making my dads 60th birthday cake he doesn't like things too sweet so I was thinking of making a lemon syrup cake and covering with fondant to decorate. I'm stuck on what to put between the cake and fondant! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was meant to also ask whether I should ganache or put buttercream.

I use a lemon curd and buttercream and it really works

I always use straight lemon curd in between lemon cake layers.  People really like how tart it is.  It's sweet, but it's like the tartness cuts it quite a bit.  You could also do cream cheese icing or white chocolate ganache (but that would be really sweet).

I forgot to add that I would put lemon zest in the cream cheese icing.
