We love trifles because they look so impressive and taste so yummy. This recipe would also make lovely individual parfaits.
Cut the shortcake into 1-inch cubes.
In a mixer, fitted with a whisk attachment, whisk the mascarpone cheese. Slowly add the heavy cream and whisk on high making sure the cream is incorporated into the cheese. Scrape down sides of bowl periodically. Whisk until mixture is thick and forms soft peaks. Add the vanilla and sugar, mix. Gently fold in the jar of Lemon Curd and lemon peel.
In a trifle bowl, measuring approximately 8 ½ inches high and 5 inches wide, layer one half of the cake cubes, one third of the lemon cream mixture, and one third of the berries. Repeat these layers and end with the last third of the lemon cream topped with the last of the berries
