How to determine if your cakes are dry?
    #1325911 - 02/22/03 06:36 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

How do you determine if your cakes are dehydrated? They still havent pinned and I am worried the cakes may be dry. Is there any test I could do? Also i am using the perlite humidification technique.

I've noticed that when cakes dry out they tend to shrink a little bit and they develope a slight blue or brown discoloration.

They will also be very light if you try to pick one up. Compare the weight of a freshly dunked cake to an old, spent one and you'll see what I mean.
