Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache

The cake I baked yesterday and decorated today with the chocolate ganache I also made yesterday. It's a first for me: No. Fondant!  The  roses (nor perfect, but then again what rose is perfect?) are made out of buttercream.

I wonder, for how long can chocolate ganache be stored??

Chocolate cake

Cake I baked for a friend who asked me to bake her a chocolate cake for her birthday.  The cake is chocolate, covered in white (homemade) marshmallows fondant. The flowers were made the night before with a mix of gumpaste and fondant. The accents in the top are made from the left-over red gumpaste/fondant mix.  Very quick cake, I have to say.
