As long as there aren't pins forming on it already, you should be okay to dunk (dunking would damage or kill the pins).

If it is pinning, I'd wait till after the first flush.

This got me thinking;

My mom grows african violets. She has this neat system for watering; the puts a length of yarn in the pot with the plant in it, then lets the other end of the yarn hang in a bowl of water/nutrients. Water travels up the yarn to nourish the plants.

I wonder if something like this could be done for cakes? I guess it would really increase the chances for contam, but if it were done in a clean terrarium/environment, maybe lost water could be replaced this way?

Placing the cake directly on wet perlite would have essentially the same effect.  People have claimed increased yields from doing so, but there's also an increased chance of contam.  Do a search for more info.  :smile:
