How to Know If You Are Being Served Stale Pastry
To know whether the pastry sitting on a bakery counter is stale or not, keep the following things in mind.
Be careful to check a pastry cake piece that is decorated with dark icing colours. If it is stale, the dark colours are likely to bleed into the white portions. When the pastry is older than a day, this is more likely to happen.
- A pastry cake with whipped topping can lose moisture quite easily. When that happens, you will see cracks on the cream. This is because the whipped cream becomes dry and unpleasant. Ideally, any pastry with whipped cream on top must be consumed fresh.
- A tray full of pastry on a cake shop shelf is likely to be a fresh batch. But if it’s a lone pastry sitting out there, be careful of its freshness. Though it could be fresh, it’s better to confirm. Ask the salesperson when it was baked and whether it is fresh or not. Also, keep the above two points in mind to check for freshness yourself.
- Another indicator of a bakery always selling fresh pastries is its popularity. If the bakery sees a lot of footfalls every day, it means it is doing well and cannot keep stale pastries on its counter. Always make it a point to go to such shops.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are Pastry and Cake the Same?
For the sake of simplicity, let’s say that they are ALMOST the same. In strict terms, the meaning of pastry is wide – it can include savoury items as well as sweet ones. Cakes, on the other hand, are sweet and made in the usual way with flour, sugar, butter, eggs, and essence. So, a cake is a pastry, but all pastries aren’t cakes.
How Long do Pastries Last?
Pastries can be almost fresh for two days. Of course, consuming them the day they are baked and decorated is ideal but if covered with foil or plastic wrap, they can stay almost intact for two days. Inside a refrigerator, they can last a week but when covered with plastic wrap or foil. But if the pastry is decorated, it should be consumed the same day.
