I have made and used Lemon curd for a lemon cake before and had really good response from this. Well I am making an orange cake tomorrow night and was wondering if anyone has ever made orange curd? Do you think I could just substitute orange for the lemon? I have tried using orange marmalade before and it was just too sweet. I am open for suggestions for what everyone uses in orange cake for a filling.

Thanks a bunch
Melissa

I use orange curd all the time in my mimosa cake. There is a thread with the recipe in it somewhere.

I just made this cake this past week and got rave reviews on it last night. It contains orange curd and that's where most of the compliments were aimed!

Here's the link for the recipe posted by txkat: http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-382023-mimosa.html

P.S. You'll see that she has a link to a recipe on Epicurious, but she tweeked it, so make sure you read her recipe all the way through, as well as the link. icon_wink.gif
