Sorry it has taken so long to reply to your ? but in America this is a big holiday and not many people are on the board :)


A cake that has been baked properly can be wrapped in plastic/cling wrap and frozen for up to 3 months.  If you can't/don't want to freeze it, it can be kept for 3 to 5 days.  Alot depends on your location - if not in the U.S. and it's a very humid area the fewer days the better!    It also depends on the cake recipe.  Is it a typical American cake?  Or more of a mud cake?  These factors all determine how long it will stay fresh.
