Fraisier Cake

I decided to make a Fraisier Cake. 

I used Mary Berry's recipe. It was easy to follow, and the accompanying video was totally helpful. 

There are two layers of Genoese sponge soaked in a lemon sugar syrup. The center is filled with strawberries and crème mousseline. The whole thing is topped off with thin marzipan (the green part). Then, I garnished with chocolate, strawberries, vanilla buttercream, and marzipan roses. 

This was such a pleasure to make! It was my first time working with marzipan. I found out that it sticks terribly to parchment. Now I know. ;)
