I used hazelnut bliss by dekuyper. and yes i added the filling on top of the ganache. I made this cake yesterday for our work party, gone in 5 minutes. friends are asking for this recipe.


yes ,it needs to be refrigerated, if not using the same day. I made mine the day before, and re whipped it on medium high for about 5 minutes before using it. turned out great.
