Either way should work well.

Your buttercream will adhere to the sides IF you have chilled your cake first and the ganache is set up. If it's warm at all, it will run down the side. 


I assume that you're looking to do the shiny ganache (pouring it while it's warm) but my personal preference is to let it set up over night at room temp and then use to frost the cake. PM me if you need a great recipe that's full proof!
