Why is the Princess Cake Green?

I'm wondering if anyone has any insight on the Princess cake, a cake which seems to hail from Sweden and which is made of layers of sponge cake, fruit preserves, buttercream and often shaped in a dome, topped with green marzipan. Does anyone know its history? And why is it always green?
