    Use a small sharp knife to cut a small cone-shaped piece from the top of each cake, leaving a 1cm-wide border. Cut each piece of cake in half and reserve. Use a teaspoon to fill the cake cavities with the lemon curd. Top each cake with 2 reserved cake pieces to make wings. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
