Becky's 21st Birthday Cake!

My sister is turning 21 on October 11, howver she'll be studying abroad in Geneva, Switzerland, so we had a surprise 21st birthday party for her over the weekend. Her favorite beer is Heineken Light, so I made her a Heine cake. I asked her what her favorite cake flavors would be because I had a cake to make for a wedding shower as well, and I she told me I should make lemon cake with a strawberry creme filling. So I used that flavor combo for her!
I used this recipe for lemon verbena cake, I used Dorie's pastry cream recipe, halved, mixed with 1/2 c. fresh pureed strawberries, and my standard buttercream and fondant.

This is the pastry cream, no cake photo!
