I don't live in a hot climate but I do know that in the summer air conditioning is a must. Ganache is chocolate and cream so will not harden properly if the weather is too hot/ humid. You can use it if you have air conditioning otherwise I don't think it'll stiffen enough to cover with fondant.

Most bakers in Australia use ganache because the climate is too hot for buttercream, so you can use it. 

 

Here is part 1 of a 3 part tutorial on using ganache for cakes. She gives her recipe as well. Watch the 3 part tutorial. I have done my fondant cakes with the ganache and they look so nice when covered!

But Claire138 is right...it will definitely have to be in a/c. Really anywhere it gets really hot, cakes shouldn't be in the heat. Any buttercream or ganache will melt. :)

mfeagan:  this is a good video set.  I've watched it before.  She uses her chocolate ganache like I use buttercream. Her cakes must be yummy.

I know! It looks amazing! I have wanted to try it. I think I may for my next family gathering. They are where I try out new techniques just in case they fail! :)
