Ganache and freezing

Hi, I have a couple of questions on how Paul bakes, ganache's and freezes cakes. He mentions that you can bake and ganache a cake and then freeze the cake until you need to ice and decorate it. How would I do this with the moist chocolate cake because I thought this cake was best baked and frozen before halving and filling therefore would not be able to be frozen again after its gananched.

Sorry if this sounds confusing!


Hi, In the tutorial on the chocolate cake Paul says to pop the cake in the fridge once its cooled but that it is better off being frozen. You would then take it out the day before to defrost before ganaching it. However I found a similar question on the link below. Hope this helps
