once the cake is cut and passed around to each guest I would instruct the caterer to cut up the remainder and place it in the bakery boxes and stack them on a table near the exit.  Have a sign on the table that asks guests to take a slice, or two, when they go.

@Meowkers:  I agree. I would not want my guests to have to assemble the boxes themselves or even put the cake in it themselves. I think if they have to do it themselves they won’t even bother.

I agree with those above. I would have everything assembled and filled to consider it a favor.

@Meowkers:  Exactly this is pretty normal here (Australia). The slices are already in boxes or bags for the guests to take as they leave. I agree you don’t want guests putting them in the boxes themselves, or assembling the boxes.

We’re doing this for any extra cupcakes.  We’re putting preassembled boxes on the cake table with a note encouraging people to take one to go.

We did this. We had our cake maker bake a ‘kitchen cake’ and the venue sliced and popped it into little bags for our guests to eat on the busses we supplied to take them back into town. They all loved it!

I’m doing exactly what Meowkers suggested.  I’ll give the caterers the boxes (with a fork attached to each one) and guests can grab them on their way out.  The escort card table will be flipped and act as the favor table.
