Iced Lemon Curd Layer Cake

Hi Lindsey. I have made Delia's Coffee & Walnut Cake with coffee flavoured mascarpone filling and the Classic Sponge with Mascarpone and Passion Fruit filling - sooooo good.

I would like to recreate the mascarpone filling in the lemon cake. Can you suggest how much lemon curd would be appropriate to get a balance of lemon flavour for a filling in this cake instead of pure lemon curd. Thank you.

Lindsey, Food Editor

For Eileen

Hello Eileen,

I think I would try one third lemon curd to two thirds mascarpone. To check the taste and consistency I would make up three tablespoons of the mixture first.

Best wishes
