Cut cake into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes and place in bowl. Drizzle with liqueur and toss with fork. Set aside.

Set aside 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the strawberries and 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the blueberries in refrigerator for garnish.

Place one-third of the cake cubes in trifle bowl. Top with half of the remaining strawberries and one-third of the custard, spooning custard into gaps. Top with another third of the cake, pressing lightly, remaining blueberries and another third of the custard. Top with remaining cake, strawberries and custard. Cover and refrigerate for 12 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

In bowl, whip cream; spread over trifle. Sprinkle with almonds. Garnish with reserved berries.
