So I'm reading a lot about chocolate ganaching a cake.  

Got some questions, hope someone can help me. It will be my first time to do this.

So i think i got down how to make the chocolate ganache.


Once I crumb coat the cake, I can put it in the refrigerator right? How long?

Then apply the 2nd layer correct?

My big question is after my cake is all ganached up, can i put it in the refrigator till the next day and then put my fondant?  

Or should I just leave it on the table for next day to put my fondant to decorate it?


What if my cake has strawberries or lemon curd.  Is it okay to leave my chocolate ganached cake in the fridge?  


How many hours before applying fondant should I take the cake out of the refrigerator?  

Should I worry about condensation like buttercream?


I truly appreciate the feedback.  I really want to try and make this but I'm iffy about certain things!!!


Thanks Bakers!!! :grin:
