I need some help please? I have to make a baby block cake for a baby shower. It will be the 3 blocks, 2 at the base 1 at the top. I need some ideas/ help as to how to stack it. Can anyone shed some light? Thanks a lot.

This is one of my baby block cakes.

Stacking is the same as if you would stack a normal tiered cake. Just place the block that will be on top on a sturdy cake board or foam core cut to size and stick some wooden dowels into the bottom blocks to support it. Have you stacked cakes before?

You can also put a dab of melted chocolate or some buttercream under the top block before placing it on the bottom blocks to keep the top one from possibly shifting.

Here is a link to my stacked baby block cake:

The top cake is on its own cardboard and I used bubble tea straws in the bottom 2 cakes to support the top cake. It worked out very well.
