I was wondering if I could use lemon pie filling for my cake filling. Has anyone ever done that before?? I made some lemon curd but I don't know if I have enough and thought about incorporating some lemon pie filling into the curd.

I've used Cherry Pie flling before (dammed with chocolate frosting) and it worked fine I guess lemon filling sets pretty well and isnt all runny. So long as it has something to hold it in I would use it. But then again I'm new to this so hopefully someone else may be able to help more than me HanX

I would suggest putting a thin layer of buttercream frosting on the entire cake to keep it from seeping into the cake and making it mushy. Be sure to put the dam around the edge!

Lemon pie filling in a can is basically the same consistency as the lemon filling you buy in a plastic sleeve. I've used the canned lemon filling before and never had a problem.

I have used it as a filling before. It should incorporate ok.
