I would go ahead and cover the whole thing in fondant first. Make a template that would go up the wide side (or back) of the wedge and across the top (this would look like a long thin triangle attached to a square or rectangle). Decide how I wanted to "torte" it - two layers of cake with one layer of filling etc. Since this is a dummy cake I am assuming that it is for display only. If it was to be chocolate I would carefully spread some chocolate icing on the "cake" sections into which I would press ground coffee or something else quite brown. Pipe some filling using tinted piping gel - possibly red for raspberry into which I had mixed some sesame seeds. Then I would add an additional layer of fondant (use the template that you made earlier to cut it to the exact shape) that came up the back of the cake and across the top and decorate as desired.
