We have a wedding booked for May 21
My husband husband was just offered an opportunity to make 4x what we make in a month. How long will a fondant cake be good and fresh?
if we bake and decorate and it sits until Friday (so 6 days) would it be okay?

its a topsy turvy cake- fondant- amaretto with white chocolate ganache chocolate with peanut butter are the flavors.

we are committed to doing the cake - but we are trying to do both. anybody have any insight?

I don't know if it will be good that long. I only make my cakes maybe 2 days in advance of the date.

Six days is too long unless you refrigerate. I wouldn't know about the refrigeration part because I never refrigerate any of my cakes.

I personally wouldn't want to eat a cake that is 6 days old.

No more then 2 days. Especially with those kinds of fillings. You will end up with a not so good tasting cake. Good luck and hope it works out thumbs_up.gif

A thought would be to freeze it decorated, but not everyone has a space in their freezer for a stacked cake and there could be condensation issues.
