I wouldn't want to eat a cake that old. I think it would be very dry.

Lemon curd- Should be fine.
Cake- Will probably be a little too old if you are planning on selling it, it won't be it's freshest. if you are using it for a house cake for you and your family it may be ok. Next time, you can wrap it in saran and foil and freeze it to preserve it a bit longer....

I would bake a new cake to go with the lemon curd--you don't want to waste it on dry, old cake.

I left a cake for 4 days in the fridge and it ended up really dry. Thankfully it was just for home, but I've never seen cake last so long once the boys are told they can eat it.
So a week and a half....

Mmm...lemon curd. Sounds tasty!

refrigerators dry out cake. And bread. And other baked goods. Freezers preserve moisture by, well, freezing. Its a relative humidity thing.

Instead of just throwing out that week old cake- why don't you make cake balls? Those will be more edible than the cake.
