How long can you store a cake covered in store bought rolled fondant? I need to make a cake for a party, 17 days in advance.

We suggest storing a fondant covered cake at room temperature for three to four days max. You could always bake your cakes and freeze them ahead of time, but I would not recommend covering the cake with fondant that far in advance.
