Making a 9" square by 9" high baby block cake- is the following ok?
total 4-2" high cakes, buttercream between each, stacking first 2 layer with buttercream center and then placing dowels and foamcore board slightly small than 9" and stacking the next 2 layers?? One dowel threw center to hold in place? Any other ideas would be appreciated, thanks in advance icon_smile.gif

I have not tried the panels but I have seen it done on some of the food network shows. I like the look. It looks like they just use a sharp knife to cut to fit.

Hopefully, someone with experience will answer soon.

What about covering the sides with ganache so you get a crisp look?

Yep, panels work best. One of my fave cakes to make! This was 8x8. I assemble, and ice all at one time. I use a hot stainless steel ruler for final edge sharpening.
