Some growers apply a thin layer of damp verm to the top of the birthed cake to help retain moisture while fruiting

Also, one of the TEKs suggest covering the substrate with verm to fill the jar to the top prior to steralizing. I have found that it is better to put foil over the jar and make a "bowl" and fill this w/ verm prior to putting the lid on and then steralize. With verm right on the substrate sometimes it's hard to distinguish when the jar is fully colonized.
This is my personal opinion and not the rule.

depends on what you're going for. Adding a teaspoon or two of vermiculate before you add the substrate will make it easier to remove your cake from the jar at birthing. adding vermiculate to fill the jar after your substrate acts as a layer of protection from contaminants.

but really, you should look into casings, and forget about cakes.
