I was really looking forward to doing this recipe for a BBQ with about 15 guests - looked quick and easy enough to do between courses. The flavour was lovely, but the filling was far too runny (even after an hour in the fridge post-mixing) and just poured out of the holes in the baskets, so I'm glad I only did one to start with! We ended up using the mixed filling as a sauce on the other desserts. I'll try again another day with less curd as per some of the reviews and see if that works.

So easy and went down a treat with my guests. I followed some previous advice and started off with the creme fraiche then added 1 tbsp of lemon curd at a time until I was happy with result. Don't assemble too early or the baskets will go soft. I will definitely make this again.

I did not like it. It was too lemony even though I had followed the advice given in comments to reduce the amount of lemon curd used. It tasted like lemony yoghurts you can get from suoermarkets to be honest. I thought the lemon and raspberries did not go together. Won't try it again I'm afraid.

Yummy!Very simple to make. Went down very well with my guests. Would possibley use less lemon curd next time, maybe a squeeze of lemon juice to make is less sweet but more lemony? Will definitely make again.

Great quick desert to impress. I would definitely advise less lemon curd, I would stir in a tbs of lemon curd into the creme fresh at a time and adjust according to taste. I had lots of broken baskets unfortunately, I am welcome to more ideas on how to use them up!!

yummy! nice and light, i made using crushed ginger snap biscuits in glass ramekins as couldn't be bothered to find brandy snap baskets!

Very simple and tasted great, but because I'd prepared them in advance, the baskets had started to go a little soggy.

Made this for supper last night and it is so light and tasted lovely. Had to make my own brandy snap baskets as I live in France and could not buy them, but it was not difficult. I made everything ready just to assemble before eating, will definitely be making this again.

Apologies the randy Snap recipe wasn't on here, it was from the BBC Food site

Delicious. I made my own brandy snaps using the Mary Berry recipe on here, really quick & easy. I also used 300g of creme fraiche to 225g of lemon curd and added some lemon zest to the mixture as the original was a touch too sweet for my taste

Would the flavours still work together if I used lime curd instead of lemon, please?
