Quite a long time ago (20 years or so), handmade hatboxes were a popular craft.  Quite simple to make, and nice and round.

Do a Google search on "how to make a hatbox"

Basically, you start with a round piece of mat board, and and a long mat board rectangle that will be the side.  For the cake layer, you would need TWO round pieces.  You run a piece of masking tape all the way around the edge of the round piece.  Slash it down the one long edge and stick the little slashed pieces down to the round piece.  Then you slash the OTHER long edge.  These little slashed pieces are used to attach the side of the box the the circle.

Curve the rectangular piece and start fitting it around the circle, taping the two pieces together as you go.

Attach the other circle in the same way, then cover the whole thing with decorative paper.
