8. Top with sliced bananas and crushed walnuts. Place the second layer on top of it and brush over with some syrup. Pour some whipped cream on top and spread. Spread around the cake a thin layer of whipped cream.

9. Decorate the top with sliced strawberries.

10. To transfer the jelly, cut some parchment paper and roll around the cake. It should be high enough to hold the jelly.

12. Remove the parchment paper and decorate the cake with some whipped cream.
