Lemon Cake with...????

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

  I'm making a lemon cake and I'd like it to have a filling in it however I don't want to do the classic/basic lemon cake w/ lemon filling.  The cake itself will have a really good lemon flavor already, so i don't want to over do it by putting in a lemon filling. The only one that I thought that would go good would be raspberry.  Other ideas I thought were strawberry or blackberry but i've never had any of these flavors at all (including the raspberry) with a lemon cake. 

 

Can you give me some tips and/or recipies that would go good with a lemon cake???

 

Thank you!!!

I've never tried any of these and I got these from another thread, people have suggested: Vanilla mousse,cream cheese frosting and swiss meringue buttercream; although people are raving about the raspberry hope this helps xx

I do  lemon with raspberry, lemon with strawberry or lemon with mixed berry which is a combination of strawberry and raspberry. I add blueberry to it sometimes too - tastes excellent!

I had a lovely lemon with an almond and poppyseed filling, I've never tried to recreate it but it was lovely! It was definitely ground almond based with lots of ground up poppy seeds for colour icon_smile.gif

White chocolate raspberry buttercream - just the white chocolate buttercream with raspberry mixed in. Very yummy.

Don't think you are overdoing it with a lemon filling. That is actually my most popular flavor. I use the Dickinson's lemon curd and people go nuts over it. I also like raspberry for a lemon cake filling.

I make lemon curd with the leftover yolks from my SMBC, super easy!

I make a lemon cake with lavender buttercream.  I buy the dried lavender flowers at Cost Plus World Market.  It's very very yummy.

Alright, so is the Buttercream for the most of the suggestions a basic buttercream???  He (my bf, aka the one i'm making the cake for) isn't the biggest on sweets, but he LOVES Lemon!!! i'll be using fondant to cover the cake so would i use then the extra buttercream so the fondant stays on the cake or could i use a raspberry-buttercream for both filling and under fondant? 

 

P.S. I made a lemon cake for his birthday last year, but he fondant I used SUPER sweet and most people ate it without the fondant ( I used a marshmallow fondant that I found on allrecipies.com).  Did the sweetness come from the fondant or the buttercream??

I make it all the time with strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, lemon curd, and I generally use standard buttercream, but have added curd to the vanilla buttercream, and it was so good, I hid the leftovers!

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

If you make a meringue based buttercream it won't be that sweet, a powdered sugar buttercream is much sweeter. Fondant is very sweet, but if you roll it thin enough it shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Blueberries.

 

Blueberries pair very well with lemon.  You could make a blueberry filling, or you could add blueberries to your lemon cake, then make a lemon curd filling.  Or you could mix blueberries into your lemon curd filling.
