When making these cake donuts, you’ll want to make sure you store them properly. You want to make sure the donuts are protected from the air. When exposed to air, it deteriorates faster.
Donuts will last about 3 days before they start to spoil and go bad. You can also freeze these donuts to help them last longer.

Since these donuts are covered in chocolate frosting, you’ll want to wait until the frosting is set, or freeze the donuts before wrapping them. Once the donuts are frozen, wrap the donuts in waxed paper before moving the apple donuts to a freezer bag or airtight container.
