how long bake a cake stay fresh in the fridge after its been decorated
A cake will last 2-4 days in the refrigerator; if cake has fresh fruit or whipped cream, it will last 1-2 days in the refrigerator. A frosted cake will last 8-12 months in the freezer.

A decorated cake can last in the refrigerator for a maximum of 4-5 days and still taste great. The exceptions would be if it is red velvet (the color will bleed through) and if the cake contains pieces of fruit.
