I have no idea what a 2/3 cake box is, but you can make your own box from 2 18x14 boxes.

Lay out the boxes front to front. Overlap the boxes until the desired length between the backs of each box is achieved. 18 inches in your case. If I recall correctly, the smallest box you can make with these sizes is 18 inches.

Tape the boxes together inside and outside (cardboard side and white side)

Fold up the flaps on one side of the box. You'll need to tape the extra flap up.

Slide your cake in the box, then fold up the flaps on the other side of the box.

If your cake is low enough, you can just fold the top flaps over. If the cake sticks up, cut off the front half of each lid, then tuck the sides of the lids into the side flaps so they're propped up on an angle. Tape them so they don't pop out. Cover the top opening with cellophane or plastic wrap.

I have more pictures and would like to post an article, but have no freakin idea how to do that. icon_smile.gif

Hope this helps!
