Swedish Strawberry Tårta

This fresh strawberry cake is a Swedish Midsummer must have! Jordgubbstårta tastes light yet savory and will be gone in a flash.
The inside is a "sockerkaka" or sugar cake, similar to yellow cake.
It's cut into three layers. Between the layers there's pastry cream, strawberry jam and mashed bananas. Top the cake with whipped cream and decorate with strawberries.
