The sides of the cake layers show the frosting, berries and jam oozing

[Note: the picture on the cover showed the top layer being swirled with the
frosting, dottted with berries and then, dusted with cocoa powder. This
dusting of brown cocoa powder on the white frosting looks delightful with
the brown layers showing at the sides.]
