Looks like the cupcakes fit! Afterwards, I ripped up some bits of parchment paper and stuffed it in all the little spaces around the cakes to keep them safe during transport.

Which sticks right inside the lid of the box. Neat
And here's the final finished product all tied up securely with a gold bow, ready to be stuffed in a Forbidden Planet bag and dragged around town for a day.
