almost frozen cake.
    #1053912 - 11/14/02 10:38 PM (15 years, 11 days ago)

Well I was dunking/cold shocking my cake for the 4th time in hopes to get it to get a 4th flush, but the fridge setting was too cold in my fridge. The cake was in a bowl, with a napkin over it, and then the bowl was filled with a water and hydrogen peroxide mix. I covered it in saran wrap, and I took it out today, and there was a ring of ice that formed along the insides of the bowl. As far as I could tell the cake was not frozen. Is it going to live?

who knows, I never cold shock my cake, but im worried it wont produce a 2nd flush, since it produced about a wet ounce the first flush and now it smells musty and quite bad

It should be ok. Outdoor beds survive multiple winters. And i've never heard of cold shocking being necessary after the first flush. To my knowledge you only cold shockit after birthing to tell the cake "HEY" you know "STOP GROWING AND START PINNING BITCH!" and then its like "OK" and then after a couple flushes you dunk it to rehydrate it. It shouldn't be necessary to force pinning now. Then again i didn't write the book on cakes. I always case.

although I haven't tried other techniques, it worked the last 3 times. The method doesn't fail so I'm not going to change it.

I never cold shock mine, just dunk it for 18 hours then let it sit in the rubbermaid chamber where it grows a little more then stops and starts pinning. maybe the mycellum knows when it grows and finds no more nutritants after a week it knows it reached the end and must procreate already!
