Help I need a straight answer!
    #1638674 - 06/17/03 12:41 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

First off I'd like to say that I've done my fare share of reading from this site, and can't find a concrete answer. I was wondering if a cake wouldn't fruit for no reason? I know that 75F/95-100rH is good along with 3+ fannings/light and misting.
Conditions are right and 3 cakes grew to pin perfection, but the 4th cake still has yet to show a pin. It has been 2 weeks and 3 days. I'm trying to be patient, but with other cakes looking nice I can't help to believe that this cake is a dud. Is that possible? Can I re-dunk to trigger pinning? I would greatly appreciate a detailed account of what I should do. I know you guys(and gals) here, and you get to the bottom of everything! Thanks a million. :confused:

Well I'm no expert, but I have a little experience with your problem. I had a cake that wouldn't pin for a week and a half. So I dunked in the fridge(cold shock)for 20 hours, and rolled it dry verm once it came out of the dunk, and a pin popped up yesterday, so go figure.

Not very likely it won't pin at all if it came from spores. I'd go with Dank's advice; a dunk in the fridge is a good idea.
