If I fill a cake with buttercream on Monday, cover and decorate with fondant on Tuesday night, will it be fresh for Thurs night?

I assume I would just leave it out?

I might bake in advance and freeze it until Monday.

i see no reason why, people get so jittery about leaving cakes out these days, theres no reason why it should go bad, unless its got a pershiable filling that needs refregerating

I'm worried about it going bad, just whether the cake itself will be fresh in taste and texture.

i think it would be, usually the fondant acts as a sort of 'protective' layer
ive had cakes been out several days (family cakes, not customers) and theyve been absolutely fine icon_smile.gif

And that was supposed to read, "I am NOT worried about it going bad...", but I think you got that icon_smile.gif

Much appreciated!

Most bakery cakes (at least the ones I've worked in) have a 4 day shelf-life, from the time they are decorated to when they are sold as "day" old. I think cake is actually better on about the third day--the moisture evens out.
