Baking: Layered Lemon Cake

So recently Dana and I went to dinner at a friend's house. We were charged with providing dessert. We had been looking for an excuse to make this great layered lemon cake that we had made last year for a birthday, so jumped at the chance. We started with making the frosting and the lemon curd:

We then baked a couple of pretty standard yellow cakes and cut them in half horizontally - layering them on top of each other alternating curd and frosting:

After assembly, cover the cake with frosting...:

And then decorate!:

The end result? Very tasty. We had half the cake at dinner and were able to convince the guests to all take a little home. We love baking but aren't that into the leftovers - do you want to be our friends? ;)

Yes, I'll be your friend! Looks beautiful. I remember you made that for a celebration (can't remember which) at the Holiday Inn La Jolla. Christmas??? Delicious.
