Lemon poppy seed

My friend and I came up with this recipe when mulling over ideas for my sisters wedding cake. I used this for all four tiers with great sucess. I did use a lemon curd filling . I mixed each batch seperately for the larger tiers increasing mixing time by 1 min. after the 10 min cool time I gently pressed down on the crowns and that eliminated any trimming. The end result was a cake dense enough for fondant yet very moist and tastey
