my cakes all dry up :\
    #4550799 - 08/18/05 10:13 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I've birthed my cakes like 4 days ago and they are already dry like a rock! Yesterday I dunked one of them for 8 hours and today it still looks like it has no humidity left. I don't get it... I already throw out 2 cakes and I feel I will fail again.. Here is my setup : Humidity gage reads ok, temp is in the 70'...

The myc don't necessarily need to be wet themselves...they get their water through the humidity in the air. I'm not sure that they should be dry as a rock though...if you dunked them you should have rolled it in dry verm to maintain the moisture. Try redunking them (make sure the water has a pinch of h2o2 in it) and roll them as well.
