I made orange curd but was not happy with the flavor (was not strong enough) so I added orange marmalade and it is not as think as I woudl like. should I damn my cake with buttercream and then add the filling, or should I tak another egg yolk, cornstrach and orange liquor, cook it and add this to my curd?
I'm not sure about adjusting the recipe...but I can tell you I will always dam my cake layer- I've used chocolate BC filling and iced with white BC and found the chocolate coming through and mixing with the white BC- it happened twice! I won't be making that mistake again!
Definitely make a BC dam.
Definately dam and f it's really soft you might want to put a very thin layer of bc on your cake layers touching the curd too - so the moisture doesn't wik away into the cake. I had that happen once and the curd turned into a gummy mess.
Great idea- I never thought of that!
thanks so much!
You can just cook a little more cornstarch into it, or gelatin.
