I have only used ganache once, and it was poured because it needed to be shiny. I let the leftover sit out and it set up pretty nicely. Now I'm wondering if i were to whip it, would it be more light and fluffy? I would have tried it with the leftovers but I kept stealing a spoonful here and there til I finished it. Oh well...has any one out there tried whipping it?

I'd venture a guess that nearly everyone here has whipped ganache. It's a pretty standard thing to do.

Leah_s I'm sure you're right but I don't get many requests for ganache. My cakes are all Pastry Pride. But my real question was, after whipping it, does it get light and fluffy?

It does taste lighter and fluffier - it also lightens in colour. Great to pipe.

Keep in mind not to over whip it as it will have a grainy taste.

How long do you whip it for? How do you tell when its whipped enough?
