SC Challenge: The elaborate Christmas-themed cake...

    Hi guys,

    Working on a new batch of challenging questions, and curious to hear some thoughts about this one!

    The elaborate Christmas-themed cake that won the challenge in The Great British Bake Off, a popular British reality cooking competition, was, unusually, trapezoidal in design, its layers carefully set atop one another with the ends hanging over in acute angles, each of which was later iced with either red or green frosting, and features, when cut into, a vertical cross-section in a snowflake design.

    A) features
    B) was featured
    C) featuring
    D) had featured
    E) featured

    OA in a little while! Smile

    Well, it is harder than I thought. I think the OA is D, but I am not sure.

    Anyone can help me?

    eventhough it's tempting to use "to feature" as a verb here , I think that features should be used here as a noun -
    I'm going for A

    each of the layers was iced with frosting and features
