What starts a pin?
    #1909905 - 09/12/03 04:26 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Does anybody know what starts a pin to form? The reason I ask is because some homeless feller has a PF-type cake that has inconsistant pin set. When it came out of the bowl the sides had pulled away a little, and all surfaces had overlay. The (now) upside down cake started pinning on the bottom next to the perlite, which would indicate a lack of water in the cake. For about a week now there's been small clusters of pins here and there on the cake, and this dude was wondering why pins would cluster in one area, and another area would be smooth overlay. He scratched the surface of overlay, but no pins formed there. He put water on the top of the cake and it seemed to stimulate the formation of clusters. Adding water to clusters seemed to make them grow faster. Just curious what other people say as to why causes pins to form.


Happiness is feeling zestfully clean.
