Skewing the plane can help. Skewing reduces the effective
cutting angle. You can also skew the block plane about
45 degrees so the front of the plane is heading towards
the ceiling, slide it across to make the cut and then at the
end push it upwards to finish the cut.

You can also just nick the ends before you plane with
a chisel or file. You can cut a little triangular flat on
each corner (mark it out with a gauge if you like),
then plane the chamfers until the flats disappear
and become the chamfer corners.
