I had some choc. ganache left over, about a cups worth. Thought I read to whip it up if I wanted a frosting texture. So I whipped it up and put it between the layer of a cake. Put the cake in the frig before frosting the outside of the cake to firm up the ganache.

A few minutes later I looked in the frig and saw my layers had slid off of each other! I've made ganache a few times and always turns out. Was I supposed to add pwd. sugar? I checked the recipes and it doesn't say to add it. What did I do wrong?

Thanks for all help!

Did you put too much between layers? I've never had that happen icon_sad.gif

Don't know what happened!!

But good news....I made a new batch of ganache, put in freezer for awhile till really cold and then whipped it up. Turned out perfect.

Whew! I'll never know what went wrong with the first batch.
Thanks for responding though.

I agree that it sounds like you overfilled... that's probably the #1 cause of layers slipping off of each other.

Okay, sorry to have bothered everyone, because I just cut into the cake and it's delicious~
