Question regarding citrus curd developing skin....

pamplemouse | Feb 24, 2012 09:55 AM

I am making a grapefruit tart and the top layer is a curd. I am headed to VT for the weekend and will be serving the tart on Saturday night. I baked the tart with the custard layer and made the curd last night, both are in the fridge, but I am wondering if I should bring them seperately and assemble before dinner on Sat night or if I can assemble now, so that it looks pretty when we arrive tonight :) Does curd form a skin after it has cooled? Or is it just while it initially cools down?
