How long do cakes stay fresh

Hello,

Just wondering how long a cake will last once made without being decorated?

And once have been ganached and covered with fondant how long the actual cake is good for?

Thanks

It depends what kind of cake you've made.

How long is a piece of string?

 

Seriously there are some things in cake decorating that you need to figure out yourself - by testing your own product.

 

Can't tell you the number of cakes i have made in the name of 'testing' - I know how long they keep for in what conditions - whether they freeze successfully - and how long before mould appears

 

There are NO shortcuts for somethings - this is ONE of them !

I'm making a few cakes for saturday and I wanted to make them earlier without freezing them if I don't have too.
I'm making a caramel mud cake, raspberry cake, choc/ vanilla marble cake and a strawberry mud cake.
I was planning on decorating them on fri/ sat.

My mudcakes last ages. I've had them sitting for a week or more, and they've been fine.

 

Others will last a couple of days, probably. Freezing won't wreck your cakes, though, if that's your worry. I'd freeze to be on the safe side if you're worried.

Ok thanks, I'll freeze them just to be safe
