stack the blocks in whatever design you want. Stack three on the bottom and one on the top so it looks like someone was playing with them!

A Baby Shower Cake Idea The " Baby Bootie Shaped" Cake
To make your shower cake look like a baby bootie you will start with a round cake. Pink or blue frosting is traditionally used to decorate a bootie cake. Frost your cake, but save any writing until you've made the booties.
Using Marshmellows make two little booties on top of the cake. Put two marshmellows end to end, and take a half of a marshmellow and put it on the top of the second marshmellow.
The first two marshmellows make the bootie and the half marshmellow will make the bootie ankle. Use your frosting to decorate the booties and make laces from white frosting.
