Hi everyoneicon_smile.gif

I was given the suggestion of using ganache instead of frosting for my cake balls and was wondering if ganace is perishable or not. I never refridgerate my balls or pops since I use ready made frostings due to being a home baker with my business.

Ganache does not need to be refrigerated...its what truffles are made from. So you would have cake?truffle they would taste great! icon_smile.gif

Thanks JSK. I for some reason thought they had to be. I would like to use it as binder instead of frosting for my cake balls. Then coat in choc bark. Is it thick like frosting and if not, do you think it can bind the cake to where I can form balls? Thanks again.

I hope you do try your cake balls with ganache. They are very yummy and they don't hang around long enough to worry about refrigeration. I highly recommend using it.

I also add icing fruit. I am making drk choc/raspberry; choc/cherries and a vanilla with either lemon or orange icing fruit for Thanksgiving. icon_smile.gif
