Lemon curd cake with ginger frosting

I threw this together last night and today for a friend's birthday party, and was asked to take pictures of the construction.

Laying in the lemon curd filling, in between layers of white cake:

Cake assembled and ready to frost:

And on the table, cut into and being enjoyed:

Recipes, for the record:
White Cake from Better Homes and Gardens
Lemon Curd from Joy of Cooking
Fluffy White Frosting from Better Homes and Gardens (using water with ginger soaked in it, then strained out and boiled down to concentrate flavor. Still wasn't hugely noticeable...)

That is one FANCY looking cake, with the whipped frosting caps! Taste as good as it looks? I really appreciate the photos~ :) Lucky birthday girl!

I'm continually amazed at what you "throw" together. Julien told me it was delicious. It surely passed the taste test!

You know how I feel about lemon cake (still, 100%, my absolutely fa-a-a-a-vorite kind). Every time I think about this lemon curd with ginger frosting concoction, I start drooling a little...okay...I start drooling a lot.
