the reason i asked s cause verm gets extremlly hot in the microwave (learned the hard way after losing 2 bowls). so since it is a plastic container make sure the number inside the recycle symbol is 5 (i believe, corect me if im wrong guys) or it will melt through it and leave a nasty mess of verm and melted plastic. i suggest if your going to do this go out and buy a pyrex glass dish and do it in there. cause it will break regular glass with the high heats. but 2-3 minutes is what i have done with no problems.

no... I use verm for rolling, and verm and coir for casing.  If am going to roll I put just verm in the pc. If I am casing then verm and coir in the pc.

It's my bad I probably shouldn't of mentioned coir in this thread since it is about cakes :grin:

no need to microwave. what do you think happens when you take out the verm from the microwve and rolla cake in it...it isn't sterile anymore.
