Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C).
Prepare 250 g FunCakes Mix for Sponge Cake Deluxe as indication on the package, mix this into a greased baking pan and bake the sponge cake in a preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes. Let the cake cool down by using a cooling grid.
Prepare 200 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream as indicated on the package. Beat the whipped cream stiff with FunCakes Whipped Cream Stiffener and cut the fruit into pieces.
Cut the sponge cake twice with the cake saw and put some buttercream in a decorating bag with tip # 012. Pipe 2 dikes on top of each other with the buttercream and fill the void with whipped cream and pieces of fresh fruit. Cover the entire outside of the cake with buttercream and let it stiffen in the fridge.
Knead the marzipan smoothly on your work surface and roll it out to a thickness of about 2-3 mm. Cover your cake with this. You can choose to cover the cake in one go, but you can also do the side first and then the top.
Divide the remaining buttercream into three portions and color with the pink, yellow and orange coloring gel. Put this separately in three different decorating bags with # 1M and pipe swirls alternately on the cake. Mix some of the colored musket seeds and the other litters and sprinkle this on the tufts.
