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
E) featured

OA in a little while!

each of which was later iced with either red or green frosting, and features

Anyone can help me?
