Serves: 12
  • 1 ½ cups Idahoan® Original Mashed Potatoes (must be the ones in the box – not in the pouch)
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • 2 ½ cups confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 3 eggs
  • 2¼ cups heavy whipping cream, divided

  1. Place sugar and mint in a small food processor; cover and process until blended. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  3. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 4-½ tsp reserved mint mixture. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add mashed potato flakes alternately with ¼ cup cream. Stir in lemon juice and peel.
  4. Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13" baking dish. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. In a large bowl, beat remaining cream until it begins to thicken. Add ½ cup confectioners' sugar and 1 Tbsp mint mixture; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in lemon curd; set aside.
  6. In another bowl, combine strawberries and blueberries with remaining mint mixture and confectioners' sugar.
  7. Cube cake into 2" squares. Layer in glassware starting with a dollop of the cream mixture, a spoonful of berries and a couple cake cubes. Repeat.
