if you notice this next time as soon as you break them id suggest putting them back together in the jar and dunking. understand its hard to determine just how dry they are but you can try this. cakes that are very dry are hard to crumble and have hardened around the cake instead of being soft and crumbly. so you have added a moist casing layer good. now you want to mist the casing directly with lets say 4 direct mists depending on the size of the casing (how many cakes?). id use 4 for a 2 caker, adjust accordingly. dont soak it but you have to get water in there or it will just contaminate while u wait. do this today and tomorrow then stop and leave it in the dark for 2 more days, then check it. maintain the 90 humidty. hope it helps
