Mackays Lemon Curd
I wouldn't say I'm any kind of lemon curd connoisseur, but I can tell you that the ones in the store aren't all great. There's one in particular with packaging that appears super fancy and did an effective job of duping me into thinking it was the best one. Until I tasted it. No. So far, Mackays Lemon Curd is the best-tasting one I've run across. Of course, homemade will be a million times better, but for quick recipes, this is the one I'll be using from now on. If you know of a better one, please let me know in the comments.
Any kind of an offset spatula comes in handy for spreading things, whether it's frosting on a cake or Cool Whip over graham crackers. I use the fancy little butter knife that came with my silverware set because its compact size makes it easy move around in tight spaces, and, let's be honest, it's what I have. I don't have this mini offset spatula, but I'm sharing it because it has many positive reviews and is probably one I would pick if I needed to replace mine.
