I'll spare you all the boring details, but basically I've been asked if I can make a cake that wont be cut or eaten until about 8 days after it is baked. Because the cake will be travelling in a vehicle for a few hours, I said I would only do this as a fondant cake.
I've told the person asking that I cant guarantee the cake will taste good after that long, but that it should be safe to eat. Now that I've said that though, I want to make sure its true before I commit to anything!
How long is too long to leave a cake out before it is no longer "safe" to eat? I'm tempted to have her freeze the cake and thaw it out before needed, but I dont know what will happen to a fondant covered and decorated cake as it thaws. Any advice/suggestions?
