Thanks. I'll try the warming over hot water first and see how that goes.

I've warmed it up over a bowl of warm water before, so can't see why you couldn't microwave.

Spoon idea is better tho grin

I have made some (rather lovely even if I do say it myself!) chocolate ganache to spread in and on DD2's birthday cake tomorrow. The recipe I used said it could be refridgerated for several weeks and can be whisked to make it spreadable. It's been in the fridge for a few hours and is set hard - I can't see whisking being possible so how can I re-soften it to make it spreadable? Can I give it a quick whizz in the microwave on a low setting or will leaving it out at room temperature for a few hours work? It'd be a shame to have to eat it all myself with a spoon wink.
