The roof and window are low enough in the package that when the cupcake is installed you're only likely to see its wrapper through the 'window' - not its frosting and decoration. If you'd prefer a box in which you see the cake frosting then it would be better to choose one with a window on the top of the box, or a clear box.
These are a very nice gift box. I wish I'd ordered a 4 cake model as well, and will probably be back for more.
Having said that, the item was shipped in a box that was too small for the product, and so when it arrived the roof had been bent out of shape. I've managed to smooth things out, but it's not in pristine condition. Still good. Mildly annoyed.
Shipping to Australia took 19 days.
