I am wondering if you can frost chocolate ganache over a layer of ganache that has been poured? I poured it tonight and want to put on another layer.  is there any other way to put on another layer of ganache once it has set?

Here's a recipe where they do it. According to this as long as the first layer sets up first your ok, the suggest sticking in refrigerator/freezer then pouring second layer on.

I have never done this but I've poured ganache over a cake and the next day added white ganache drizzle-I don't see a big difference between the methods.

Sure why not, It sounds delicious.  Good Luck.

MB, I can see you've been practicing. Your latest chocolate petit fours look perfect.

MimiFix, Thanks! 

I only made a half-batch of Pound Cake to practice on. Ddaigle is correct, it does get easier with practice.
