dunking w/ pins
    #2563389 - 04/15/04 02:02 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I have a friend whose cakes are starting to show pins, and hasn't birthed them yet. Can cakes be dunked if pins are present? Does the verm. have to be sterilized b4 rolling, if so, how long and at what temp? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Very small pins like a dunk :tongue: it's fine for them. Verm doesn't have to be sterilised before rolling, although you could if you wanted to by submerging in water and nuking in a microwave for five minutes. It's not necessery, but it's a sensible precaution if you have the time. Allow the verm to dry before rolling though. Rolling is best accomplished by getting a plastic bag of dry verm, dropping the cake in and rolling around in that. It's better than rolling on a hard surface.

how much does a roll increase the yield. i dunk, but do not roll. does it increase fruit size/number dramatically, or what?

IMO, it increases pinning by increasing the effective surface area of the cake. Personnaly, when rolling I have seen a small but reliable and significant increase in the levels of pinning compared to dunking without rolling.

The major factor in fruiting is moisture.The more moiseture available to your cake,the greater the yield.Since Verm holds moisture,then it makes sense that rolling a cake in verm would allow more moisture to be available to the cake.Take Odiumjunkies advice.
I steralize my verm in the microwace just to be safe.
I had a cake that was covered with tiny little pins,that i thought were aborts.I got sick of trying to get get them all off,so i dunked anyway.They grew 10fold after the dunk and some reached 1 1/2 inches tall.Dunking small pins doesnt hurt at all.
