What kind of biscuits to use?
I think Tennis biscuits are typically a South African biscuit. In the UK I use ‘Nice’ biscuits which are very similar. They are a butter biscuit with a hint of coconut in them.
They come in packets of 250 g which should just be enough but it will depend on the dish you use. I would suggest buying two packets just in case. Any leftovers are perfect with a cup of coffee.
How to serve Lemon biscuit cake?

How to store the no bake lemon biscuit cake
You can store this dessert in the fridge for up to two days.
It also freezes beautifully – I cut mine into portion sizes and then open freeze until just frozen. Once frozen, pack into a Tupperware dish and keep in the freezer until needed.
Decorate once it has defrosted and voilá, you have a super quick dessert for those unexpected guests.
