I have someone who wants a "lemon filling", I don't really like lemon curd (except Dickinson's) so don't really have any idea what a good lemon filling would taste like....plus I kinda wanna buy it to save time....Is there a good lemon filling I could purchase or does anyone have any easy recipe? Could I use the Dickenson's? It's just a 6 inch 3 layer cake, so I don't need too much. TIA!

e.d. smith lemon pie filling is really delicious - comes in a can and is thicker than lemon curd so is probably sturdier to fill a cake with?

I am doing a lemon filled vanilla for a funeral on Sat so I will watch this, because other than buttercream with lemon extract or lemon juice I am clueless

For lemon filling I make the Jello pudding and pie filling that you cook. Easy to make and tastes great. If You like it more lemony just add lemon juice (tablespoonful). Or buy a sleeve of lemon filling at a cake decorating supply store.

I just made lemon meringue filling last weekend for the first time. It was awesome!!! I made fresh lemon curd (from the Whimsical Bakehouse cookbook). I brushed a little bit of curd on the bottom cake layer and then filled the cake with SMBC which I had added some of the leftover curd to. Then you can adjust how strong you want the flavor to be by adding more curd. It was awesome!!

I prefer making lemon curd. Otherwise, I use the lemon filling pastry sleeve, but to me it is mildly lemony.

I just use the lemon pie filling that is in a can at the grocery store. Lemony, stable (no refrigeration required) and it is always a hit - easy peasy. icon_wink.gif
