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.
Ai would do buttercream as a personal choice.
I use a lemon curd and buttercream and it really works
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).
a cream cheese frostin with lemon cake would taste amazing ,i always put cinnamon in my cream cheese frosting the taste is unreal but not sure how that would taste with lemon cake
I forgot to add that I would put lemon zest in the cream cheese icing.
AThanks everyone! I'm trying to decide on a cake now as I really want to cover it with fondant and decorate :)
