How can I tell if cake has gone bad?

 The cake will be hard and dry. For rather complex reasons, the starch contained in flour essentially feeds on moisture, causing the cake to go stale. The cake also may be moldy.
 
Fruit-based fillings may be mushy, slimy or moldy, indicating the cake should be discarded.
