I do one coat, but it's a bit hit and miss as to the final finish.

I keep it moving till the last possible moment if I want a smooth finish ...stir genty until it looks like it is just on the edge of spreadable solid, flash it over a low heat to bring it back just a fraction and then pour it slowly on the cake and then whip the whole lot briefly into the fridge and hope it does not all run off and puddle on the plate.

More usually I slather it on and go swirly....it's just less bother. #unhelpful

Dip your palate (palette???) knife in hot water (AND WIPE DRY!) before smoothing to keep ganache nice and spreadable on top of cold layer 1. You'll need to keep beating your knife like this but it will work well.

Heating, not beating.

Sorry if advice is too late!!
