Have you mixed lemon curd with buttercream?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I need to make lemon filling for a yellow cake today! I was wondering if anyone has mixed in the lemon curd with buttercream or if this was even a good idea? I usually use the lemon curd all by itself...

I think you can do this.


Let's see if someone else chimes in....

One of my favorite fillings is 1 part lemon curd to one part buttercream. It is excellent. You could substitiute any kind of curd--gives it a bit of tang mederated by the buttercream. With the Vanilla cake--the sky is the limit. Adding any fruit preserve plain or with buttercream is good. You can also add a bit of fruit puree to the buttercream for filling.

Mmmmmmm! Lemon curd between the layers and mixed with buttercream outside. It's the BEST! Just don't put too much curd in the mixture. It will get runny if you overdo it.
It's not how good you are, but how well you can fix your mistakes.

I do it because some people find the lemon curd to be too much. So i tone it down with BC it's great and you get a tangy sweet sour taste.

I've never done it with regular BC, but its great mixed with IMBC, and I imagine it would be good with regular BC too!
