A week is pushing it. Better open a can of something.

If you would have frozen it then it would be good over a year. I would eat it after a week in the refrigeator.

The longest I’ve kept a cake stored in my refrigerator is just under two weeks. There shouldn’t be anything wrong with the cake (so long as it’s not molding for some strange reason), that your body couldn’t easily handle. Just remember to keep it covered!

Hey I’m fine and yes the cake was in a real nice box covered . The cake must have cost atleast $25 bucks and those big chocolate roses were well great!!!

Definitely eat it. I assume you wouldn’t be asking the question if it was molded or putrefying….so I would go for it. I have eaten cake that was outside the fridge (in tupperware) for almost that long.

Is it green?
Does it have hair growing on it?
Have any of the pharmaceutical giants contacted you to harvest penicillin samples?
If you answered yes to any of these questions. Then toss it…
If not…Bon Appite

It varies depending on the birthday cake ingredients and how you store it. Sometimes advice regarding that is included on the cake recipe.
