A cake for the weekend

Hi everyone! Hoppe you all had a nice Easter.

I know this is a bread forum, but I believe there are someone one there that can help me to decide on this. Next weekend I have a dinner party at a friend's house and I am supposed to take a nice cake ( I am known as "The cake lady"). This time I would like to surprise everyone with a Lemon Mousse Cake. Now, I have 2 jars of Lemon Curd ( home made ), and I thought I could buy  double cream, whip it as a chantilly, fold in the lemon curd and use as a filling to my cake. I haven't done it before, so I would like to know what do you think it would taste. I havent't thought the frosting yet, perhaps a frosting using white chocolate would go well with the lemon. What do you think?

The first time I had lemon curd was on brioche.  That was a wonderful afternoon.  

It was also this time of year I first made a swiss apple pie but instead of cinnamon, it contained some sourcream and lemon.  Made a nice change.  What do you think about an apple cake with lemon curd and double cream?

Thank you Mini! That is an idea, although I realy would like to try something different. I love mousse cake and so do the people I am having dinner with, however I am tired the usual ones, so my thought of this. I have this two glasses sitting in the fridge that need to be used soon. I will go for it and see how it cames, but I will keep your suggestion in mind.
