I baked a cake Friday night from a box...and set in frig for 12 hours wrapped in saran wrap. Then Saturday morning I filled the layers with buttercream from grocery store tubs and iced the outside of the cake with Wilton White Frosting...the delivery is not until Thursday. Will the cake last that long? I currently have it setting in the refrigerator....HELP!

I think that's pushing the limit of freshness. I have found that putting cakes in the fridge actually tends to dry them out.

That's a bit ahead of the game. Almost a week before delivery.... I don't think it will be very "Fresh" by Ths.

I would wrap it well and put it in the freezer, you would have a better chance of it being moist, I think you are definitely pushing it though.

Kinda understand you did it because you want your cake to be perfect and didn't want to rush or get nervous and make mistakes... but by Thursday freshness will be definitively compromised. Follow deMuralist advise, may still work. Good luck!!! icon_smile.gif

Personally, I think 6 days is too long without freezing.

I'm not a fan of cake after the 4/5 day mark. So I wouldn't serve a cake that is already 6 days old.

I'm with most... that cake is too old. You can bake ahead and freeze your layers and then pull them out to thaw and then decorate, but having sat filled and iced for 5 days before delivery... I wouldn't give it to anyone.

Try freezing it. Just make sure it's wrapped well.

I would just eat the cake/ serve it to family members and bake a new one today, wrap it, ice it tomorrow and let it sit for one day.
I wouldn't freeze the first one and take the change that it might not be that good when you deliver. After all, that one is also already four days old.
