Chocolate Ganache filling

by Tina
(Slidell, LA)

If I use the Chocolate Ganache recipe as a filling in a wedding cake, how long can the wedding cake sit out without being refrigerated? Is 8-10 hours too long? We will deliver the cake in the morning to the reception hall (which is air-conditioned) at about 11 a.m. and it will remain until the reception at 8:00 p.m. Will the ganache spoil with the cream in it?

From the editor:

Hi Tina,

Chocolate ganache can be stored at room temperature for up to 48 hours, as long as it's cool room temperature. So an air-conditioned room will be fine.

Good luck and don't forget to take lots of pictures so you can come back and share it with us.
