Since it's made with cream, do you have to refrigerate your cake once you cover it with ganache?

What if you use a whipped ganache for filling?

TIA

Hello Sarah -
If you wish to refridgerate Ganache - you can...whether just in a bowl or in/on a cake.
Because the properties of the cream have been changed due to it being bought to boiling point - and you have then mixed it with the chocolate - it is fine out of the fridge for some 5 or so hours.

Once i have torted and filled and then covered a cake With Ganache - i do place it in the ridge to *firm up* before putting my outter layer of regalice on it.

You can also torte and cover a cake with Ganache and then freeze it if you wish - for up to three Months.

Hope this helps
