I think you will be fine, I can't see that strawberry would be any more risky than apricot jam which is what one would normally use for fruitcake. Now the marzipan is on it the air can't get to the jam anyway.

Any jam is fine. My Mum (and now me) have been using jam to stick the icing to our christmas cakes for years ... with no ill effects. xx
