Dunking ?
    #2531748 - 04/06/04 03:54 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Got a few questions about dunking, and yess i did do a search but didnt really find any of these questions answered.

1)Since i wont be cold shocking the cakes is it better to use cold water or should i still just use warm water?
2)Does the water need to be sterilized somehow, and does it matter if i use tap water or do i need to use bottled water?
4)Can i place all of my cakes in one big jug or should i use individual jugs for each cake? And can i just rest the cakes right on the bottom or should they be placed on something in the water?

Im sure you guys all hate lists like this but i didnt want to drag this post out forever since these questions have probably already been answered sometime or the other.  Any comments or suggestions are welcome and all the information provided is greatly appreciated. :grin:

I personally dunk with cold water.

2) Either use spring water or 1/100 H2O2 Water (peroxide and h2o mix)

3) you dont have one :cool:

4) Place each cake in a diff jug

1)Cold water is best. Bacteria breeds in warm water.
2)I use tap with some bleach. The ratios are around here somewhere.
4)You can place them all in a big jug if you want. Its best to do this with cold water with a little bleach. Sometimes a cake will have an undetected bacterial contamination that cam spead to the other cakes. peroxide will break down quickly so bleach would be better than h2o2 if you do this.

If you don?t have containers for each cake you can just scrape off the verm layer and then add water/h202.

How will you even fit any water in their original jars? The cakes take up pretty much all of the jar?
