Sort of Italian Cream Cake; but definitely made with love!

The dessert I made for valentine's Day was a special creation for Trent.  He loves the Italian Cream Cake served at Olive Garden.  So I thought I would set out and make one.  Well, it didn't turn out like Olive Garden's but it is a keeper.  So much so that after Trent finished his Valentine's Day Sort of Italian Cream Cake he asked me make a second when we had friends over.

Here's my recipe for Sort of Italian Cream Cake
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 T. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
Butter a spring form pan.  Combine all ingredients.  Pour into a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 65-75 minutes.
When cake has cooled to room temperature place in refrigerator and chill for a couple hours.  Slice cake into three layers and fill with the filling below.  Sprinkle the top with powdered sugar and you're done.
1/2 pint whipping cream
1/2 cup powder sugar
2 heaping teaspoons lemon curd
6 ounces cream cheese, softened.
Beat the cream and sugar together until it forms peaks; but not to the butter stage.  Add the remaining ingredients.  Chill.
