It depends what consistency you're looking for.

Whipped ganache is my preference for filling a cake, because it's light like chocolate whipped cream.

Regular ganache, while delicious as a topping, I use this for my double chocolate cakes to ice the cake, but as a filling it will harden to almost like a truffle center. You may want this consistency, if so go with the regular ganache.
