I've always been a big fan of creamy lemon desserts, there's something very satisfying about a rich, decadent creaminess being counteracted by a zest lemony tang. I also very much like creamy orange desserts too, like orange yoghurt, but I couldn't find orange curd (I could always make it myself, but that's another recipe for another time).
The consistency of this was nice and dense and thick, and truly rich. It's not to be consumed in large doses, or a sore tummy may follow.
