Hmm..interesting! It's usally done the other way around. I guess it would work,i'd refridgerate the cake for a few minutes before putting the buttercream on though. Just so it would be firm and not mix into the buttercream. Let us know how it works!

I've worked with ganache several times though I've never even thought to do it this way. The things our customers think up! I suppose it would be possible. Though like revel said, you will for sure want the ganache to be thoroughly chilled and set before you start to ice it.

the only thing i could suggest is what the others said, make sure the ganache is chilled. good luck let us know how it goes.
sorry for the lack of caps, i'm typing with one hand and holding a baby in the other thumbs_up.gif

Use #789 to apply the buttercream once the ganache has chilled. You will need to work fast. Also, this cake will need to be kept chilled so the buttercream does not slide off.

Well let us know how it goes.

I hope there is a way to do this for you and your customer. But in all honesty, if a customer asked me if I could do that, I'd tell them "no". (not saying it cant' be done ..... just saying that *I* couldn't do it).

To me, it would be like someone asking the handyman to put up the wallpaper BEFORE he put up the drywall.

If it's possible, then I'm just displaying my ignorance and inexperience .... but if I'm inexperienced in flying a plane, then I dont' fly a plane. Not saying a plane can't be flown ... just saying that *I* couldn't do it.
