Last night i heated up my heavycream, melted it with the chocolate. This was at about 10PM. I completley forgot about it and when i woke up this morning it was still on the counter. i covered it and put it in the fridge.
Question is.... Is there anyway it will spoil?? it wasn't hot in my apartment, acutally it was pretty chilly in the kitchen. And my thought is once the heavy cream is heated it shoudn't go bad...
Please give me your advice...
If the cream was very fresh AND I were planning to use this for a family get-together, I would not worry about it. If I was using this for a paying customer I would purchase more cream and chocolate and begin again. This is just my opinion.
I have kept cakes filled and or crumbcoated with ganache for several days at room temp with no problems whatsoever.
It is a cake for someone at work.. That is why I was worried.. I haven't whipped it yet. But on a normal day if i made it in the morning, i may not get it in the fridge for a few hours anway..
I just don't know what to do..
seems like i am obsessing over it, maybe i shoudl just go buy new!
Most of the recipes say, to let the ganache sit over night on a counter and not in the fridge, because then it's going to be too hard for whipping.
So you should be fine!!
