Cake that improves over a few days but doesn't require refrigeration?

I'd like to send a birthday cake to my grandpa (turning 86 at the end of the month) but am having a hard time coming up with ideas of cakes that actually improve over a few days (shipping time) and don't require refrigeration (which nixes cheesecake, the only cake I've come up with that gets better with a few days). Since I'm shipping, it would need to be at least somewhat hardy, too. Any suggestions? Or should I stick with cookies?
