Fraisier -- Strawberry Shortcake French Style

This was Jef's birthday cake:

You can watch a fabulous video on assembling it here. This was my take on putting it together. I didn't have everything they had in the video. (No time to make pistachio paste, for instance.) Also the recipe wasn't really written out, you have to just follow the video and guess on some parts. So, I made it (twice), and this is what worked for me:

You need:

One recipe génoise + syrup (I added rum and almond extract to mine)
A double recipe of crème pâtissier with gelatin added
7 oz. marzipan
a few tablespoons of strawberry jam/perserves
1 lb. + strawberries
