Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. lemon curd (or more to taste)
1½ cups heavy cream
• Whisk all of the ingredients except the cream in a bowl. Do not use a beater because the cheese can curdle from overbeating.
• In a separate bowl, beat the cream to stiff peaks. Then, fold it into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients until combined. Add more lemon curd according to taste.
• Frost and serve.
It’s a mix of cream cheese icing and whipped cream.
