I will be making white chocolate ganache (not whipped) filled cake. I want to finish the cake Thursday night, because customer wants to pick it up Friday morning, however cake won't be served until Saturday. Can I refrigerate the cake?? I'm afraid the ganache will get too hard in the fridge. Does it become soft again when it returns to room temperature? Anyone has any experience with this? TIA

I never refrigerate a ganache covered cake. It will be fine from Thursday night until Saturday left at room tempature. The ganache seals your cake so it will keep it fresh. Ganache isn't suppose to be refrigerated although some say that they do with no problems. I wouldn't though. thumbs_up.gif

Thank you for your reply...I forgot to mention the cake will be covered in fondant it will only be filled with ganache.
