Happy 16th Birthday to my little boy!

Anyone who knows me will know that cooking is not my best activity, I do not enjoy and do not achieve very good results.  
As it is my sons 16th Birthday today his sister wanted me to make a cake that she could hide presents in.

On the SVG's Cuts website I saw this pattern for a birthday cake box.  
I cut 8 boxes on my ecraft and put them all together - then 8 candles and flames where cut and assembled
The top of the each slices lifts off and inside she had put money, sweets and little treats
I think it is the best cake I have every made!

 Luckily my mum is a wonderful cook and my son had requested a 
Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate Cake!!

She baked a round chocolate fudge cake and a small square one
iced them in chocolate , then decorated with rolos, chocolate orange,M&M's, Magic Stars, white chocolate buttons and mint matchmakers.

It is not a cake that you want to big a slice but it is very yummy
Can you guess that my dear son a slight sweet tooth!!

The paper cake is for the following challenges:

Thanks for looking

Both cakes are fabulous. I missed that particular die at svgcuts. I especially like the center where you can see a clever. You made 8 of them. Wow...I did two that are similar and was tired...haha

Your mum's cake is my kind of cake...just like your son's sweet tooth...chocolate chocolate chocolate! A lot of time, thought, and love went into it!

Hi Sorry, I know I'm so far behind the 8 ball and this is such an
8 ball and such an old post! HOWEVER, I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for the chocolate cake?? I've seen pictures etc a few times and I just can't seem to find a recipe. So was just wondering if you guys actually made it & did still have the recipe any help is grateful. Please and thank you. :)
