5 cups (600 grams) powdered sugar
1 cup (100 grams) liquid glyucosekos
Green food coloring
Mix everything together, then add color.

Build the cake:
Slice the cooled genoise horizontally into 3 equal sections. Place one genoise layer onto a cake plate, and spread the jam onto the top surface of the genoise.
Cover the jam layer with another slice of genoise. Next, spread the pastry cream, followed by a layer of whipped cream.
Cover the cream layer with the remaining slice of genoise.
Very thinly spread whipped cream over the entire cake, and finally drape the rolled-out marzipan over the whipped cream. Cut off the excess marzipan around the bottom, add decorative ribbons or flowers, and top with powdered sugar.
