Zucchini Cake with Lemon Curd and Ginger-Coconut Buttercream Frosting

In Ithaca, there's a running joke about the over-abundance of zucchini that comes around each summer. It goes:

Why should you always close your car windows in Ithaca in the summer?
Because if you leave them open people will fill your car with zucchini!

Har har har. Okay, so that's probably not actually what would happen, but it would be pretty funny. Either way, summer 'round here means more squash than a person knows what to do with!

So naturally, what else to do but bake a cake? :)
