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.
Thanks

I don' t know the answer, but I'm giving you a bump so it says on the front page........ I"m thinking you could use it, but I don't know for sure....

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 cream...whatever...is 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
