Do I have to let my cakes settle before covering in ganache
it's definitely a nod toward having less issues later but you don't have to -- i probably would not -- others would never leave home without it -- this is all your decision -- best to you
In my almost 30 yrs of decorating I almost never let a cake settle! So my answer is NO ones does not HAVE to let a cake settle........BUT........it doesn't hurt to do so if you have the time. Think of having a BUSY bakery. Do you think they let their layers settle together each and every time??? NO! There just isn't time for that. And most all of their cakes do not suffer one bit.
I'm a big fan of settling. No, bakeries don't do it. Most bakeries don't torte either. I'm different.
Leah I like to settle mines as well but I just recently started covering my cakes in ganache and I love it I've seen people use ganache and bot settle I thought maybe it would be different since ganache settles hard I'm on a crunch so that's why. Thanks everyone for their replies
