Birthday cake with mango curd, suggestions needed...

hottestsalsa | Jun 26, 2012 10:41 AM

I'm making a birthday cake, and so far, the only thing I know I want in it is mango curd (just got a bunch of fresh mangoes from my tree). I need some help figuring out what could go with it. Most recipes I've seen so far have a vanilla cake, but I'd like something a little more special. I thought maybe a lemon cake with a vanilla flour frosting (my latest obsession, buttery and not too sweet) or Swiss buttercream, and maybe a thick lemon glaze over that so that it kind of smooths out the top and drips down the sides. Not sure if that would be too much, and I'm worried lemon might overpower the mango.

Any suggestions? Advice?
