Whenever possible, fresh fruits especially imported types (e.g. : strawberries, blueberries, cherries, etc) must be eaten within 8 to 24 hours after pick up.

Technically, all refrigerators are good to store fresh fruit topped cakes, but humidity may affect your fruits if they are not being kept at the bakery's chiller and at home instead. Placing your cake in and out of the fridge may also affect your toppings.
