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.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something

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! :)
