For the trifle
Hull the strawberries. Rinse and drain the berries and cut the strawberries in half. In a medium-size bowl, mix the fresh berries with sugar. Line a shallow dish with the ladyfingers and splash with raspberry liqueur.
For the whipped cream
In a chilled bowl, using a handheld or stand mixer on medium speed (and the whisk beater, if it has one), whip the heavy cream and vanilla until it begins to thicken, about 1 minute. Slowly add sugar and continue whipping until soft peaks form, another 2 to 3 minutes.
Layer the trifle bowl first with ladyfingers, then lemon curd, then berries, and repeat layering. Top with whipped cream. Garnish with mint and extra berries.
Cheap Trick: If you don't have strawberry liqueur, use any other strong liquor, like brandy or cognac.
