I'm making a wedding cake at the end of the month, it'll be my first! Scary, i know! But it's going to be a 3 tier yellow cake with lemon curd filling, buttercream and then covered in fondant. My first question is, i plan on assembling the cake a day ahead, but from what i've been reading, lemon curd needs to be refrigerated. A 3 tier cake won't fit in any fridge i own, so what are my options for not refrigerating and still having a lemon filling? The bride wants lemon... so she's getting lemon! lol And second, i originally planned on each tier simply being 2 layers of cake thick (so it would be a bottom layer of cake, lemon curd, top layer of cake, thinly iced in buttercream, and then the fondant layer) but i think the bride will be expecting more buttercream. Would i be better off doing each tier having 3 layers of cake? So it would go... cake, lemon curd, cake, buttercream, cake, thin buttercream, fondant. I hope that makes sense. Thanks!
