Freezing cake with choc ganache

Is it possible to cover the chocolate cake with the chocolate ganache and then freeze?

I have frozen ganache before and cakes but never together.

Thanks in advance for the help.




Hi Gillian

You can freeze already ganached cakes, I've done it and the cake was fine. I would advise though that you let it firm up first in the fridge, then cover the whole cake in several layers of cling film making sure all the air is out.  Pop it in a cake box before freezing. Protecting it this way prevents the ganache getting frost burn and from cracking. Let it defrost still in the cling on the kitchen counter. You could do a dummy run on a small cake just for your own peace of mind, that's what I did. Hope this helps.


Thank you so much for your help. I think I am going to go for it.
