ahhh! blue on my cakes
    #1575070 - 05/24/03 09:03 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Yes blue is usally a bruise, but its not that kind of blue. Its like a grayish blue and its not going away. Its been there for a while. Also theres a furry blue thing on one of my cakes. ITs been a month snice i birthed the cakes, and at first they were completely white, like it should be.there is no pinning and im susupecting this is the reason why. Now theres this bluish gray color, buts its not very big. Is there anything i can do to save the cakes? Can i cut the contamination of and brand the subustrate underneth the contamination? will this save the cake?

It may not be contamination. When cakes dry they sometimes take on a grey / blue tint. This is not to say that all grey or blue suggests a dry cake. Sometimes grey or blue is contamination.

Since it has been a month since birthing let's assume it is just a dry cake. In separate containers dunk (submerge) the discolored cakes in clean water for at least 12 hours and place them in a isolated fruiting chamber.

If they perk back up, it was just a dry cake. If not, assume they are contaminated.

In the future, it is better to maintain a proper humidity level than try to rescue cakes.

Good luck with that. Take care.

If you can rub it with something and it comes off it's a contaminant -- otherwise the cake might just be a bit dry.

yea, ill try to dunk it. The cakes do seem a bit dry, my hydgrometer reads 99 percent humidity, but im beggining to think its full of shit. Ill try to dunk em. Thanks. On a striaght on view the cake looks white, but when i turn it, like a halogram i see this mysterious greyish blue tint. So i hope your right Ainasko. There are no strange smells, but should i brand the area that i cut off if there is substrate showing?

There are cheap hygrometers available that will read over 100% humidity for hours after it was removed from the growing chamber. The reason is that the cheap parts and design do not allow proper evaporation.

The hygrometer reads 100% because the sensor is fogged. It is very important for hygrometer accuracy that it receives a changing air supply for proper evaporation. Visit your local garden center for better options.

I've never had to brand my cakes because i never saw the need and have never had a problem. It there is substrate showing, see if you can brush it off. It may come off during the dunk anyway.

Just dunk them overnight, cross your fingers and hope it works.
