Can I pour ganache over a cake iced with IMBC or will it melt.
My cousin wants a cake like that but I have never tried it.

I would think melting would be an issue. You can ice a cupcake and then try pouring almost room temperature ganache over it and find out. Let us know how you fair.

Yes you can. You want your cake cold, ganache a good pourable consistancy. Put the cake on a cooling rack over a sheet tray, then start to pour. Good luck.

I have poured ganach over stabalized homemade whipped cream on cakes before. Just make sure the bc, whipped cool and crusted or stabalized. Then make sure your ganache has cooled down a little. You want it warm enough to pour and glaze nice but not so cool it clumps or does not drizzle over edges nicely

It works fine.
I chilled the cake and then poured the ganache and it came out great.
Thanks for the help
