Cementing Brick Steps

Hi All!
The steps in front of my housed made of bricks laying on edge in a rounded pattern.
A few have recently become dislodged. Can someone suggest the easiest way to prepare them so that when I cement them back in the mortar doesn't come oozing out all over the place, especially bottom and front?

Re: Cementing Brick Steps

You really do want the mortar to ooze out around the edges. That way you know that there is no more space left between the bricks. Then you have to clean it up before it dries.
