I want to ice a cake with chocolate ganache. I have used it on a cheese cake before but i froze the cheese cake first. This cake I'm making now is regular chocolate cake with chocolate pudding in the middle. Do i feeze the filled cake first or just cool it? I don't want the cake to soak up all the ganache and become a mess or melt the pudding in the middle? Any suggestions????

you can use ganache.... however i recommend first giving it a gasket when filling it and ice it in a thin coat of cho buttercream and make sure its cold hard not just crusted before glazing it... works way better icon_smile.gif

You sure can !!! Either let it set, then spread it on cake like any other frosting OR you can pour it over the cake, like you would on a Sacher Torte. OR let it set then make them into Truffle...

I did a half sheet cake covered with gnache. It was the first time I used gnache and loved it! I figured that if Hostess could do it, then so could I!

have fun!
