I just finished decorating a cake - buttercream with fondant accents. I covered it and put it in the refrigerator. I am thinking it should be good until Monday or Tuesday - opinions?

When did you bake the cake? For me Tuesday is pushing it for freshness. That is not to say I wouldn't eat the cake on Tuesday (or after that, cause I certainly would) but I wouldn't bake and decorate that far in advance for something I would be serving to others.

One additional thought is if you make the photo cake and someone else makes the slab cakes, will your name and reputation become associated with the quality, or possibly lack of quality, of the slab cakes if you chose to make the dummy cake?
