Hi....Wow....Loaded question. If the cake has perishable ingredients, such as the filling, that require refrigeration, then they cannot be left out at all. That being said, I bake my cakes as much as a week in advance and freeze them. I remove them from the freezer the day before they are due and torte and fill. When they are in the freezer, I store them in tightly wrapped Saran wrap, double wrapped.

Well..In my experience, I find that the buttercream seals in the moisture in the cake. I keep my buttercream frosted cake refrigerated until right before I box it up and deliver it. Alot of time the cake will only feel dry because the buttercream has "crusted". If you are concerned about moisture loss, some bakers brush their cakes with a flavored sugar syrup before frosting to seal in moisture.
