Hi
If I make a fondant cake with Ganache underneath, Can I make it a day before and leave it out or are there any special precautions I should take?

I would appreciate all answers, thanks in advance!

Ganache is fine out As long as the cream is boiled when made!

yep it actually better if it is let to set up . I never put mine in the fridge and they last a couple of weeks out of the fridge once they are covered as well.

I just made my first ganache/fondant covered cake! It was so delish! I made my ganache on Thursday and let it sit out for 24 hours at room temp. The next day I covered my cake with ganache and left it at room temp for another 24 hours. Last night I covered the cake in fondant at served it today to the guinea pigs at work and it was a hit! I used WASC cake filled with vanilla buttercream covered in dark chocolate ganche and Fondx fondant! YUM!!

ChocolateLove, I am so glad that I was able to help! It is so super easy and you can make your ganache layer as thick as you want it, just pop it in the fridge for a few minutes and then keep adding layers!

thanks for the tip, I was just going to let it sit out and apply it as a BC, like someone suggested, but will try whatever works at the moment!
