How to 'sandwich' a fruit cake

Can anyone tell me how to sandwich fruit cakes together I would like to make an oblong fish tank so will need to stand up the cakes securely on their side

Options are marzipan & jam, fondant, royal icing, or dowel, or a combination. I decide what is best, depending on design & the state of the fruit cake (crumbliness etc).

You can just balance it together if it is firm & stable, but a little royal icing goes a long way & can be really useful.
