Lemon curd- and mascarpone cake

The same day as my bacherlorette party took place, it was my best friend, Marias, birthday. My other best friend Caroline and I had planned a full day for her and I decided that I would bake cakes. I was completely unaware of my bachelorette party and therefore decided that a birthday is not a birthday without cake. But because my friends had decided that it was the day that they would abduct me, the cake layers had to stand alone without filling for a couple of days, one of the first things I said after I met them that day was, "but I have baked cakes". There were no cakes that day, instead I invited my friends over to our place for a late celebration for Maria.

Lemon curd- and mascarpone cake

Simple cake bases
4 eggs
170 g caster sugar
60 g white flour
80 g potato flour
1 tsp baking powder

I made two cake bases in a form that is 15 centimeters in diameter. They were pretty high so I cut them in two parts so that it became a cake with 4 layers.
Preheat the oven to
175 degrees C. Begin to whisk the eggs and sugar really puffy. Mix together the dry ingredients and fold gently into the sugar mixture. Bake for about 30 minutes.

200 g strawberries
100 g cream
100 g lemon curd 
1 tbsp muscovado sugar

Mash the strawberries with a fork and add sugar. Spread a layer on one of the cake bases.
  Whip the cream and fold the lemon curd in to it. Spread a layer on one of the cake bases. Layer the cake layers with the different fillings.
Mascarpone frosting
100 g mascarpone
100 g cream
80 g lemon curd

Whip the mascarpone so that it becomes smooth. Whip the cream as well and then fold the cream and the lemon curd into the mascarpone. Spread the frosting in a smooth layer across the cake with the help of a spatula.
