Flatten the dough with a rolling pin, until it is about ½-centimeter thick and has a rectangular in shape.
Spread the cream in a layer to cover the dough, keeping some aside for decoration, then roll the dough up into a long log.

Take the log out of the fridge, remove the paper, and place it on a large plate. Cut a short piece off one end at an angle and place it sideways against the larger piece, as if it was a branch (see photo).
Sprinkle with cocoa powder, and decorate with the reserved cream and fruit. Let it rest again in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
Enjoy!!!
