This Trifle is made with angel food cake cubes and fresh raspberries, layered with whip cream and lemon curd.

This recipe calls for 1/2 of an angel food cake, you can wrap the other half and freeze it for another time, or slice it and serve it with berries and whipped cream!
Note - This dessert (or brunch!) recipe can be made and then refrigerated up to 6 hours in advance.
1/2 of a store purchased angel food cake
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup icing (confectioners) sugar
3/4 lemon curd
2 tbsp. orange juice
2 cups fresh raspberries
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
mint sprigs, for garnish (optional)
Using a wet knife (serrated), cut the angel food cake into 3/4 inch cubes, and set aside.
In a bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the cream and the icing sugar until soft peaks form.
In a small bowl, toss the fresh raspberries with the granulated sugar. Slightly crush the raspberries to release a tiny bit of the raspberry juice.
To arrange the Trifles:
Divide the cake cubes, whipping cream, lemon curd and the raspberries evenly, layering them (starting with the cake cubes on the bottom) into 6 tall glass goblets or parfait glasses.
If desired, garnish with fresh mint sprigs just prior to serving.
Makes 6 servings.
