Help!!!!! Someone Please Tell me How long a homemade poundcake will stay fresh

I shipped a homemade cake via UPS to Chicago and the cake was delivered to the wrong address and by the time the situation is corrected(Monday hopefully) it will have been six days since I baked it. Will it still be okay to eat on Monday by the time it gets to the right person? How long can you leave a cake out and have it still be edible and taste good. The cake was double wrapped in plastic then foil and placed in a plastic cake dome. It was then completely covered with bubble wrap and foam and placed in a box. I am hoping that the cake will still be okay. What do you think?
