Help with mirror glaze frosting

Hi, today i made my very first mirror glaze ever. The cake ended well, but i had some issues.
-I left the cake overnight to freez, yet the mousse remained a bit smoth. Is it normal?
-After pouring th glaze, the heat melted a bit of the mousse and made a bif of mess on the edges, should i let the glaze cool more before pouring it?

Those are my questions for futur references.

I've never done a Mirror Glaze - but I've been checking out several recipes just lately and all of them seem to allow the glaze to cool quite a bit before pouring over the cake.

Could your glaze still been just a little too warm? You can stir it occasionally to prevent a skin from forming while it is cooling.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
