I have made fondant cakes that have lasted up to about 3-4 days at room temp and 5-6 days if refrigerated.

would you leave the cake just open? or would you wrap the cake or cover it with saran wrap or something like that?

i woultnt leave it uncovered, dust and accidents and things, plus the fondant would start to set. ive had it in a cake tin, tinfoil, cellophane and clingfilm, it all seems to work well.
