HOW LONG DOES A FRESH CHEESECAKE LAST?

Cheesecake typically lasts about 5-7 days if stored in the fridge. Tightly wrap it with plastic in its original container or place it in an airtight container. If you would like your cheesecake to last longer, feel free to freeze it and just remove it the night before and let it thaw in the fridge.

CAN CHEESECAKE SIT OUT

You can absolutely leave it to sit out. But not for too long. It should be ok to let your cheesecake sit out at room temperate for a maximum of 6 hours. Depending on the temperature of your kitchen, most recipes will call for some sort of dairy so it’s recommended to store your unused cheesecake in the fridge to be on the safe side.
