yes, probably for a week

but in this situation you need to get it on the cake while it is still warm - reheating it is rarely successful

and keeping the whole thing in the fridge will prob have a bad effect on the cake part (unless it is a v rich moist chocolatey sort, not a sponge)

I'd make the ganache and cover the cake in it last thing tonight, leave it out to cool & set overnight and eat tomorrow.

ALthough it's so quick you could almost do it tomorrow morning.

Tis good stuff.

it is a cake made with veg oil not butter so hoping it will be ok in the fridge
