Default Does a ganache frosted cake need to be refrigerated?

Happy Holidays. I baked a cake and am trying to decide on a ganache
frosting or a frosting made with 1/2 cup heavy cream, chocolate and sugar.
Would I need to refrigerate the cakes frosted with either one? The heavy
cream gets heated first in both recipes, if that makes any difference. I'm
frosting the cake today and serving it tomorrow.

Hope everyone's holiday preparations are going well!

I suppose that the correct answer is that it has to be refrigerated.
However, if you keep it in a cool place, I wouldn't worry about it. Unless
it is very warm, I don't bother to refrigerate cakes frosted with ganache.
There is a lot of sugar that will act as a preservative.

Leave a small glass of your heavy cream next to your finished cake and
leave them out. Tomorrow, If you think that the cream is not OK to drink
the cake frosting is probably not OK either.

In other words, I would refrigerate cake frosting (overnight) whenever it
contains milk or cream.


Considering that the cream was pasteurized (by law), heated to boiling, and
combined with a lot of sugar, I can't imagine it would be a problem. When
you make cream fresh, you not only leave it out for 24 hours, but you leave
it in a warm place and inoculate it with bacteria.
