Success with injection
    #1295986 - 02/10/03 10:04 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Just checked my cakes again, noticed something I missed before and thought I'd share as it may benefit others.

Anyone who actually remembers half the stuff I've been posting lately, which I'm sure is nobody, may remember that I was having trouble with a dry, non-pinning cake whose dryness was unresponsive to dunking. I have no idea why this cake remained bone-dry even though other cakes in the same chamber were doing fine, but eventually I decided to inject some water into the cake itself with a sterilized spore syringe as I've seen talked about in a few places.

7.5ccs of distilled water, and twelve hours later that cake is a forest. I think I may start doing this to all my cakes instead of dunking them.

Good to know this worked for you; I have some fears in the back of my mind of my cakes drying out and stalling late in their development.... did you just suck up boiling water w/ the syringe?

No, I boiled some distilled water, covered it, and stuck it in the fridge to cool. I sterilized the needle with an alcohol flame and then sucked up the cool water.

So it does work! But not for me it seems, I injected water a couple of days ago and still nothing. I have also tried a resvoir method of poking a hole in the top and filling it with water and still nothing.
