DAZZLING PEACH TRIFFLE

1 box (16-oz) Angel food cake mix
1 tbsp chopped crystallized ginger
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar, divided
3/4 cup peach preserves
1 quart peach slices
1 pint blueberries
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup prepared lemon curd

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the cake batter by preparing the mix according to package directions then stir in the crystallized ginger. Line a jelly roll pan, 11 x 17-inches, with parchment paper. Pour batter into the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cake cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the confectioners' sugar and remove the parchment paper. Cut cake lengthwise into 3 equal pieces. Starting with the long side, tightly roll each piece in paper towel. Let cool completely. Unroll cakes and spread each piece with 1/4 cup of the peach preserves. Re-roll the cakes. Cut each roll into 12 slices.

In a bowl, combine the peach slices, blueberries, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar; toss gently to coat.

In medium bowl of electric mixer, beat on high speed the heavy cream and remaining confectioners' sugar. Beat for 2 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Fold in the lemon curd.

To assemble: Place 12 cake slices, spiral side out, along bottom of trifle bowl. Arrange Arrange peach slices above each cake slice. Add another layer of cake spirals above peaches. Place remaining cake slices in the center of bowl. Spoon the blueberries around the cake slices and peaches. Top the berries with the whipped cream mixture. Add a couple of peach slices to the top along with a sprig of fresh mint as garnish, if desired.
