Using these again to go around a pregnant belly cake! This time I will decorate all sides of the blocks and not just the top! They turn out cute either way!

I used this idea and expanded on the theme. Made a tall square cake and decorated it to look like a big block with a yellow rubber duck on top which was the theme for a baby shower - turned out really cute.

Baby block cakes are always adorable, and these are no exception. The sugar sheets are easy to work with. To save time, go with solids instead of stripes (measure accordingly). The sugar sheets have patterns and colors to match any shower theme--have fun!
