Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (8- or 9-inch) cake layers, blending dry pudding mix into batter before pouring into prepared pans. Cool cakes 10 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely. (Note: If tops of cake layers are domed in centers, use serrated knife to cut off domed tops to make even layers.)
Brush each cake layer with 1/4 cup elderflower syrup. Mix lemon curd with remaining elderflower syrup until blended.
Place 1 cake layer, bottom side up, on plate; spread with lemon curd mixture. Top with remaining cake layer.
Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add sugar, mixing well after each addition. Spread onto top and side of cake.
Refrigerate 2 hours.
Spoon 3/4 cup of the cream cheese frosting into resealable plastic bag before using remaining cream cheese mixture to frost cake as directed. Refrigerate filled bag along with the frosted cake for 1 hour. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag; use to pipe decorative dots around top of cake. Refrigerate cake additional 1 hour before serving.
For stronger lemon flavor, add 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice to cream cheese mixture before using to frost cake as directed.
Keeping it Safe
