Subject: Using a code block as input to another code block

I know I can use an example block (literal example) as input to a code
block, but I haven't found a way to fontify examples. Since my input is
code (JSON, and various programming languages) I would really like to
have that, as well as the language's mode when editing by using

A code block gives me fontification, but I haven't found a way to pass a
code block as is to another code block.

For instance, something like this:

#+name: code-input
#+begin_src C
#include <foo.h>

#+begin_src bash :var input=input :results verbatim
cat <<EOF | cpp

What are my options? I hope there's either a way to fontify an example,
or to override the default execute function for a code block, or
something else that I'm not thinking of.

I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn
how to do it.
