My tiered birthday or wedding cake gift box actually happened a few months ago when I was cleaning for Passover and trying to get rid of stuff. Of course round cardboard boxes aren't something one should throw out, but as they hadn't been put to use for years I kept eyething them for a possible project. And then, yippee, this cake box using packing peanuts as frosting came to mind, and it was made really in a matter of minutes. I think it took longer to actually heat up the glue gun than to put the pieces together, which was fortunate as there really wasn't any free time for crafting with Passover quickly approaching.
Now several months later, having used this cake three times for various birthdays, I finally got around to adding the little flag bunting, which is the finishing touch that was missing, phew! Follow along as I explain how this cake was made, and don't fret if you don't have any round boxes collecting dust, use your imagination to make your own version with whatever you can find! Square boxes would certainly work too, as would stacking food containers, like cans, that don't necessarily work as boxes. Enjoy!
