I’ve seen tutorials online that say to let the cake set over night, but I don’t have that much time.
Wanted to ganache/fondant tonight and decorate tomorrow night. I can only work on the cake in the evenings. It’s just an 8” round. I guess I could cover and decorate tomorrow night but I don’t want to be up too late. Cakes usually take me longer than I anticipate. My hubby used to say “You’ll be up til midnight” and he would be right! I told him to stop telling me that, tell me “Oh, you’ll be done before 10!” LOL
AIf I have time to let it set I do, but my last cake I just ganached and put it in the fridge until it was hard and covered with fonsant right away. I had no problems
Pop it in the freezer for an hour and it'll be good to go. I do it all the time and it works just fine.
