How long are you talking about? I never refrigerate my cakes. However, if I have left over ganache that I didn't use on my cake and I'm not going to be using it for awhile I cover tightly and refrigerate. Just take it out and let it come to room temp before using.

Depends on what you mean by "a long time". Hours? Days? Weeks?

Ganache is safe at room temperature for up to 2 days. You however, may freeze it up to 3 months.

I plan to have it out for two days at most...I have to make 80 mini square cakes, they will not be able to fit in my fridge.

Does the same rule apply to whipped ganache?
