I am sure you have heard of lemon curd, but did you try orange curd! It is delicious, it’s a little less tangy, and a bit more sweet, but so yummy.

I kept eating it right from the jar.

I used orange curd for squares, pies, cake filling but also as in buttercream.

It gives more air to the buttercream, making it light and fluffy and not overly sweet and heavy. It is basically like lemon curd but made from oranges.
