Good morning everyone from the UK on this lovely, warm, sunny September morning. Does anyone know how long chocolate ganache will keep for? I'm thinking of using it as a filling in a torted sponge cake which I am then going to attempt to shape and cover in fondant. I know this might be a bit tricky as I'm not sure the cake will hold up under the weight of the fondant, so I need to give myself a bit of extra time in case it all goes pear shaped. I was thinking filling the cake on Thursday, chilling it, covering in fondant Friday for a party on Saturday evening. That way I still have a bit of time to make another, simpler cake if I mess it up. Will the ganache hold up that long? Thanks.
should be absolutely fine katy especially if your going to keep it chilled anyway, Ive made chocolate ganache and kept if for 5 or 6 days chilled and still scrummy!!
Oh that's good to know Les, thank you. I've never worked with ganache in any serious way before, but the cake recipient is a chocoholic and one of the guests has a nut allergy. So I wanted to use a ganache for scrumminess, but make it myself for allergy-freeness, using a nut free chocolate. Fingers crossed it works!
The one book I have say's it can be kept at room temperature for 2 days and in the fridge for up to ten
Terrific Hope, thanks for taking the time to check and post for me. I'm going to clear a space in the fridge and keep it there. Ta again!
