I know it's in one of the Debbie Brown character cake books...the one with the Little Pony house and with Garfield...if that happens to be the book you were thinking of.

This past weekend I was told that if you use a 5 inch square pan you make your blocks 5'x5' the advice was make you blocks the same size in height as wide so they come out looking like blocks I haven't done any yet but thats what I plan to do I think it depends on how many people your serving and if your blocks are going to be sitting on a cake or the blocks are going to be the main cake. I hope this helps.

For this baby block cake, I made each block 6x6x6 inch. I bake 3 layers for each block, each layer being 2 inches each. These were iced with BC but the details (edging, numbers and letters were cut from fondant)
If you needed them smaller, you could quarter an 8x8 inch cake, giving you 4" cakes. if the layers were 2" high, each cake would be 2 layers to make the blocks 4x4x4.
Hope this helps!
