Since ceramides are not proteins but glycolipids, it comes as no big surprise
that the usual coating buffers do not work.
You could try the method used for coating with the related gangliosides:
Add 200 nanogram of the specific glycolipid, dissolved in 100 microliter of
ethanol to each well and let dry by evaporation.
Proceed with blocking etc. in the usual manner.

Hope this helps.
