Assuming fresh cream rather than butter cream? If so, cook says just keep it in an air tight container in the fridge but aim to make it within 24 hours of eating rather than longer. You could always make the sponges and seal them in cling film, then 'finish' the cake filling just before presenting for eating.
Jenny how thick are the two halves of cake? You are supposed to make two sponges approximately 2 inches thick each then sandwich them together with jam and cream. If you have two thicker cakes then you can freeze one and cut the remaining one into two and sandwich together. What did the recipe suggest?
Another thing you can do which is especially useful if you are only feeding a couple of people is to freeze one for another time and instead of cutting the other one through the middle cut it in half and sandwich one on top of another to make 'half' a cake. It can look quite nice with the jam and cream showing through and you won't have too much left over. Sounds lovely I could do with making a cake now, maybe I will ,as its tossing it down outside so nothing else to do.
