I am doing a fondant wedding cake in a couple of weeks and the bride asked for a lemon/rasp curd filling. Any ideas on how I can make this? I guess I could make a lemon curd with fresh raspberries?

Also, I am always very afraid to use fillings because of it spoiling. This cake will be fondant and I am not a super fast worker.

Any advice on how I can do some kind of lemon/rasp filling that doesn't been to be refrigerated???

Thanks so much!

Lemon & Raspberry curd filling. From the BBC one of my favorite websites. The filling is for tarts but still its a filling. Only downfall is you couldn't leave at room temp for very long.

The only other thing I can suggest is purchase sleeved lemon filling and add raspberries. I wouldn't mix them with sugar thou cause they'll get all juicy if you do.

Thanks so much.

Can you buy lemon curd in the grocery store - Wegmans or something?

Keltokel I live in Canada and can purchase jarred lemon curd in most grocery stores. Its always in with the jams. I'm not sure if its available in the US but can't see why it wouldn't be. You'll have to check you store and see. Good luck!

Hi ~ I use the jarred lemon curd. Before I put that on, I put a thin layer of
''seedless'' raspberry jam on the cake. Don't worry about the leaving the
cake out. It won't spoil.
