I was wondering how long a cake covered in fondant is good for? the buttercream is with all shortening, so it should be ok for a while right?

I have had some that did not require refridgeration that was good for 5 or 6 days, it might last a little longer if you keep it in the fridge.

Absolutely, it will be just fine (still at it's peak) for a minimum of four days, and more depending on the cakes, etc. The only variable would be a fruit, custard, or otherwise-needing-refrigeration-type filling.

this is pretty unbelievable but my best customers just told me that the mothers day cake from 15th March they got from me lasted until 17th April - they had literally just finished eating it when i delivered a christening cake to them. it was madeira, jam and buttercream with fondant cover. they said it was still perfect icon_eek.gif

When I made my 50th Birthday cake, we had the top tier left over. We cut it when the cake was 8 days old and it was JUST STARTING to taste like a grocery store cake. (Which means cake civilians wouldn't have noticed at all! icon_lol.gif )

So at least 8 days.
