Whipped Ganache Frosting

I Love a simple and easy frosting and I don’t think that this frosting could get any easier.

It’s just two ingredients and little bit of waiting, but that’s it. Simple.

I was a bit nervous of the consistency of the ganache when I pulled my container out of the fridge. It has the consistency of melted ice cream. It tasted great, but it wasn’t thick like what you would think of for traditional ganache. If you are familiar with chocolate sauces or truffles, you know that it thickens up in the fridge to a more solid state. This was just liquid.

The good news is that it whipped up great! It resulted in a light and fluffy chocolate whipped cream that tasted amazing!

This recipe is part one of a three part series including Vegan Orange Chocolate Cake and the frosted Orange and Chocolate Cake.

You don't have to chill overnight. Instead stick the bowl of ganache in an ice bath and whip. It will take a few minutes, but it will whip into a luscious, wonderful icing

Do you know how this holds up if made (whipped) the day before it is served? Thanks!

Should hold up just fine. If it's stored the fridge it will be firm. Wait for it to come to room temp before trying to frost a cake.

Hi, I was wondering how long this can be left out. Thanks!

It's pretty stable frosting. I wouldn't put it out in the bright, hot sun for a long time, but I've left it out inside for several hours. Are you worried about it melting or going bad?

Not sure what you may have done. Melted chocolate and cream should thicken back up. Did you use the right amount and ingredients?
