Made with oranges, this is a refreshing, tangy filling for sponge cake or any kind of layered cakes.
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)
this is a great lemon filling! I filled a white sheet cake with this filling and topped with a whipped cream frosting and fresh fruit slices. I brought it in to work an got rave reviews!! not a day goes by with out someone asking when I'll be bringing in another cake !! - 14 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great recipe and will make again but with one exception. I will use only the yolk of the egg without the white as the white wanted to curdle a bit. Adding an extra yolk, I think this icing will thicken up more, which it needs. Could eat the icing alone for it is fantastic!!! Can't wait for all to enjoy on Father's Day! - 17 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
