I've never worked with ganache before, so a family cake was a good time to start. I used this recipe: http://cakecentral.com/recipes/perfect-white-chocolate-ganache-frosting-perfected/. I did everything exact. It is now waiting till tomorrow to use it. It will go between cake layers. (strawberry/yellow/strawberry/). The cake will be covered with Indydebbie's buttercream.

Will the ganache eventually thicken, some? I understand it can be froze. I plan on that, cause I'm not using much.

It should thicken up nicely. When left overnight, it will thicken enough that you could ice a cake with it.

Fantastic! I can't wait to use it...I love trying new avenues, and this will be amazing with the strawberry cake layers.
