  1. Place sugar and mint in a small food processor; cover and process until blended. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 4-1/2 teaspoons reserved mint mixture. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour alternately with 1/4 cup cream. Stir in lemon juice and peel. Pour into a greased and floured 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Bake at 325° 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. In a large bowl, beat remaining cream until it begins to thicken. Add 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and 1 tablespoon mint mixture; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in lemon curd; set aside. In another bowl, combine strawberries with the remaining mint mixture and confectioners' sugar. Slice cake; serve with strawberry mixture and lemon cream. Yield: 12 servings.
