Happy Birthday to me!

This is a dense moist carrot cake, with a lemon curd filling, cream cheese icing and a coating of toasted coconut.

happy birthday. i'm a libra also. i'm looking forward to making your cake.  do you know how long you can keep lemon curd?  i also wonder if you can freeze lemon curd for later use? claudia

I think the lemon curd would last about a week in the fridge.  I think you probably could freeze the lemon curd, but it may be a bit thinner when you thaw it.

Great idea! I don't like overly sweet cakes (or raisins in them, for that matter) and love citrus flavor. I'll definitely try this recipe.
