Anniversary Gift Box Cake

This cake was very challenging! I never made a gift box cake nor did I have any idea on how to do it... and I suck at following directions. Loosely based on Bakerella's cake ball box design. I covered a rectangular cake with fondant, then made gum paste/fondant mixed panels and stuck them on after they dried for a few days. I wanted the lid to come off so I could stick some cake balls on top... which turned out to be a bad idea. The oils from the chocolate went through the paper cups and right through the false bottom! Had problems with the lid cracking and breaking apart. Sugar free chocolate cake, sugar free chocolate mocha buttercream and filled with sugar free raspberry jam.
