Simply place your cake in a container, fully submerged in water. Leave it there anywhere from 12 - 24 hours. Sometimes people also put the dunked cakes in the fridge, this cold shocks at the same time.

if you put it in the fridge, wouldn't the water freeze the cake? do you have to thaw it afterwards before using it again?

any other liquids that can be used besides water?

It won't freeze unless your fridge commonly freezes milk, soda, beer, etc. Just make sure that it's not set that cold. You can use water with a bit of h2o2 (hydrogen peroxide) to ward off contams. Cakes have succesfully been dunked in beer, but I don't know how great this actually works. Hope this helped, good luck!

It doesn't necessarily matter. I've put two cakes in one container (not the best of ideas). Just make sure that the cake is completely submerged.

wait so you dont need to refridgerate while dunking?? i cant really do this because i share the fridge with my good ol parents.

will dunking the cakes in cold ass water, then leaving them in the dark for 12 huors be ok?

also..what happens after the dunk....you simply just place back in the terrarium and wait?

kinda depends on room temp.
if it's pretty warm, it might be best to change/replace the dunk water every few hours with fresh cold water.
