Is this for real? Or a joke? No I haven't made it, and neither will I be doing so, I have better uses for lemon curd, chocolate and cream which involve COOKING.

Looks like something you'd serve up at a children's party. Why would JT put his name to this?

Too rich, just lemon curd, now real combinations of flavour

There is potential with this, if you don't want your lemon curd straight you could whip up the cream and fold in the lemon curd (i would prob start with half of what the recipe states and add more to taste) with some cream cheese to make a lemon mouse which you could then put on top of crumbled biscuits to make a cheesecake type desert as mentioned above. I probably wouldn't go for chocolate - perhaps some lemon zest?
