perlite raises humidity in the whole chamber or just the area under the cake?

lets say you only had one cake in a huge chamber (hypothetically), does it help to have moist perlite all over or is the cake only hydrated by the perlite it sits on?

How would you tell if a cake is too dry in terms of just eyeballing it?

yeah it humidifies the whole chamber. the cake just looks dry with a little blueing.

You know what damp sand looks like when it's too dry to hold together? Kind of like that...

The cake is sitting in a box of humidity, and that's what humidifies it. It is anyway if it's all covered in perlite. If you only had one cake you could use a smaller container but their should be perlite all over the bed of the container.
Take care
