This is a very popular choice for shower cakes—and my mom’s favorite!
white cake layers
sweetened whipping cream (see fillings)
lemon curd (see fillings)
Create a buttercream dam around your layers. Spread fairly thin layer of lemon curd on inner sides of cake layers. Fill with whipped cream (so that sandwiched in between the cake layers is a thin layer of lemon curd, a layer of whipped cream, and another thin layer of lemon curd) —
Frost as usual, with vanilla buttercream. Refrigerate until within an hour or so of party. Enjoy!
