    This recipe worked well - thanks  -  08 Sep 2009


    This filling is delicious! I bake custom wedding cakes and my brides adore this filling in French vanilla or lemon cakes. I do call it "Citrus Filling" instead of lemon, though. I think it has a little too much orange flavor to call it lemon. Forget the cake...I could just eat the filling with a spoon!!!  -  17 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
