Agreeing here with everyone else who says it will be fine since its fruit cake!

My sister got married a few years ago and most tiers of her cake were fruit. She gave me some to take home, I ate most of it but for some reason when I had about a 2inch slice left I forgot about it and it sat in an airtight tin (wrapped in greasproof paper and tinfoil) When I found it, it was over a year after the wedding and Mammy would have made it about 3 months before then, so it was coming up to 18 months old. I ate some of it and it was perfect, really moist and tasty.

Not saying that if I bought a piece of the royal wedding cake I would actually eat it at that price though!!
