I have a cake to make this weekend for a baby shower and the lady's favorite cake flavor is raspberry. I was thinking of making my normal strawberry cake just doctoring it up to be raspberry and filling the cake with lemon curd. Do I need to use an additional layer of filling with the curd? I have never used it before and most recipes I see have it with a layer of buttercream or something. Or should I go for a lemon flavored filling like http://cakecentral.com/recipe/lemon-cream-filling that isn't quite as strong tasting? Or would this not be a good flavor combo and I should just scrap the idea altogether and stick with something like a white chocolate ganache? Your advice is greatly appreciated!
