  3. To serve the towers, Place your mold on a plate with enough flat surface area for four molds. Build your first tower beginning with a layer of avocado. Press it gently into the mold without squashing it down. Next, add a layer of crab by sprinkling it then gently pressing it into the avocado. Then, add another thick layer of avocado, pressing down lightly. Add the final layer on top of caviar.
