I was thinking of making a chocolate cake with custard filling and chocolate ganache on outside. Havn't done the ganache or custard filling before so my question is wouldn't the custard make the cake go soggy after a little while and would i be able to refrigerate the cake and it taste ok the next day or does it need just to be eaten and decorated on the day? Thanks again for your help

No, a custard filling won't make the cake go soggy. I have used custard or pudding fillings several times and they are deeeeeeeeeeeelicious! icon_smile.gifthumbs_up.gif

...will the custard taste ok the next day after being refrigerated overnight once it goes back to room temp?

Custard sometimes actually improves in flavor after a day...kind of like Mexican food and BBQ! It generally has a 2-3 day life in the fridge before it starts tasting less fresh. I'm sure I don't need to remind you that it is perishable tho' so it can't be left at room temp for too long.
