^It's not hard but you need a lot of components and they require a certain amount of baking skill. Check out Joe Pastry's:

You can do a different design and change up the components (like chocolate sponge for example), but he has a good breakdown of the classic.

You can and should do most of the components ahead of time so that all you do is assemble on the day.
