Usually lemon curd will last for a long while because of the acidity. Take a little taste test and see if it tastes fresh. I think it should work just fine. Sounds yummy! I do not think you should freeze it.

You might want to keep the cake in the fridge before cutting it...it sould only be out in normal tempurature for a couple hours...

It should be fine. With the acidity, and the sugar, lemon curd will last for a LONG time before starting to spoil (2 weeks or more).
