Alright, I'o assume alot of stuff... I am assuming that your casing the cakes. If you are doing that, then a layer of anything between the casing container and the substrate is not really necessary. You could put a little moist verm in there if you want but you don't have to... it's just personal opinion.

1/2 inch of casing is good, also I agree with the verm idea. I always put moist verm at the bottom of my casings - can't do any harm and the moisture gain makes it worthwhile.

I like to double end case (casing on top and bottom), I have had good success doing it that way. Make sure whatever you do to put the casing in the microwave and sterilize it. I put my casing in for 5 minutes and let cool off, haven't had a prob yet **knocks on wood**
