Hi,

I was planning to make a chocolate cake this weekend for a friend, she is planning to take it to work for a fellow worker.

Just came across a chocolate ganache buttercream but never used ganache in buttercream, would it be okay to have it left out of fridge? It will be in a cakebox for a good 12 hours.

Thanks

That's ok. The sugar content in chocolate acts as a precervetive. icon_smile.gif

First you need to make your ganache. Then add it to your normal buttercream. Use cream and chocolate in 1:2 ratio, to make the ganache. icon_smile.gif

Hi

I was also wondering about the ganache. If ganache is made in the traditional way, with fresh cream, can it still be left out?

And just to clarify, when mixed with buttercream, it can definitely be left out? I was also worried about the cream content.

Thanks so much,
Sonal

Yes you can keep it out. But not for more than 3-4 days. First you are boiling the cream and it pasteurises the milk and the sugar qauntity in the chcolate works as a preservaive. This is what I have read in many posts in different forums. icon_smile.gif
