Store bought cakes will last longer if stored with 1/2 of an apple.
A few years ago, a dear pal baked us a cake. It was a very, very moist cake... She didn't say how long it would keep for or if I should freeze it or refrigerate it. I guess she thought I'd know. I put it in an air tight container. In 2 days, the cake was soured and moldy. So learn from my mistake and keep out just enough that you think you'll be able to eat for your next meal. Put the rest in serving sizes in the freezer, till ready to use.
To keep cakes fresh, especially pound cakes, place a slice of apple beside the cake inside the container. The cake will actually become more moist.
