Pink And Black Birthday Present Cake

First attempt at doing a present cake. 8" square, five layers. I didn't let it settle long enough before I covered it with the fondant so it sagged a little. Oh well, live and learn. It was a last minute request for my sisters last minute Bday surprise party. I had another cake due on the same day (pregnant shower cake). It was my first time having 2 cakes due the same day. Everyone loved it, and that's all I wanted!

Wow. Is the top of the "box" a cake too? I've seen it done w/ a square cakeboard but it always looks much thinner.... what did you do?

I did use cake. I wanted to get a little bit more substantial pieces of cake from the lid so I simply made the layer thicker than the others I had seen.
