this is in miniature i just made some (mini) sheet cake boxes to demo this



i buy full size sheet cake boxes with no windows

two pieces top & bottom but we are using them flat

so overlap them and tape them together

(using a handheld wide tape dispenser makes this a lot easier)



draw a square around how big you need the bottom of the box to be

by centering the cake board on the material

(in this case i used a foam cake)

but also extend the lines of the square all the way to the edges



score the lines with a yardstick



and fold the box over at all four of the scored lines--lay it flat again



four of the extended lines will be shorter--two on each side

cut those up to the square aka the bottom of the box

(where the cake will sit)



fold up one side of the whole taped up box material so the long side is standing up

and the short sides are folded to form the box you're creating

and tape the short sides up everywhere



leave the other side down so you can place the cake in there

then fold it up and tape away


if the sides in the end product are shorter than your creation you can add taller slats

made from other boxes or of foam core just to get it tall enough

to put plastic wrap over so it doesn't touch the cake



if by some chance you followed that and make a box for you cake
