My mother in law asked me to make a Cassata Cake for her co-worker's birthday next week. The recipe I am using calls for candied lemon in the filling. Where do I purchase candy lemon peel at? Would my neighborhood grocery store have it or do I need to go to a speciality store for it? Thanks!

Why not just make your own? It's super easy.

Yes, make your own. The commercially available candied peels are nasty.

I made my own once to top a cupcake...I think it was a Gale Gand recipe. It wasn't hard, just time consuming. But it's very impressive when you do.

Thanks everyone! I did end up making my own candied lemon peels today. I'm waiting for them to cool and dry so I can dip them into sugar. So far they look like they turned out the way they are suppose. I just haven't tasted one yet to see if they taste the way they are suppose to, will do that soon as they are cooled enough. Thanks again!
