AHi,

I'm making my dads 60th birthday cake he doesn't like things too sweet so I was thinking of making a lemon syrup cake and covering with fondant to decorate. I'm stuck on what to put between the cake and fondant! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Jess

AI was meant to also ask whether I should ganache or put buttercream.

I always use straight lemon curd in between lemon cake layers.  People really like how tart it is.  It's sweet, but it's like the tartness cuts it quite a bit.  You could also do cream cheese icing or white chocolate ganache (but that would be really sweet).

I forgot to add that I would put lemon zest in the cream cheese icing.
