    You have to stir it every 15 minutes while it is in the fridge for at least an hour or more. I frost the cake and let the cake set on the cake stand with frosting for at least several hours before placing the cover on. If you still find the frosting a bit too fudge like, you might try placing the entire, uncovered, frosted cake in the fridge to cool for 15-20 minutes. I would not leave the cake in the fridge for too long, as it will dry the cake out.

    well the recipe is basically for ganache. You do not need to whip the cream before you combine it with the chocolate. You can whip the frosting after it cools though for a lighter consistency--it should be very rich and delicious!

    This is a rich, good tasting frosting. The directions did not specify beating the 4 cups of whipping cream and I think that is why it had the consistency of hot fudge (similar to what you might add to a hot fudge sundae) instead of a frosting. Any other ideas as to why this might have happened?
