What do you think the easiest way is to do baby blocks for on top of a cake?

Cake is kind of messy and time consuming - I have tried rice krispie treats but they were too bumpy -

do you think I could make squares out of gum paste and glue them together with royal or chocolate? Or does anyone have any tips? thanks!

I made baby blocks out of both rice krispies and fondant.

For the rice krispies I covered it in ganache before I covered it in fondant and it wasn't bumpy at all (you can also use chocolate to get a smooth surface)

For the fondant I just cut out blocks to the size I needed, no need to make squares and glue together to make blocks. It just saves you from doing more than you need to.
