Casing With Dunked, Cold Shocked Cakes?
    #616776 - 04/23/02 10:29 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

Hi there. I was thinking about dunking my cake and leaving it in the fridge for 12-18 hours (depends when I wake up tomorrow). What I was wondering is where or not it is possible to case the cake? Or can I not cold shock yet, because I have to wait until the casing is colonized before cold shocking because it's basically telling it to start fruiting? If this is the case, can I still dunk my cakes before casing? Thanks alot. Any help would great.

Cold Shocking gives it the 10 or so degree drop and pinning begins. when you case the mycellium colonizes your casing establishing a strong network to produce fruits. Cold shocking a 'cake' to Initiate pinning would defeat the purpose of casing (you dont want to initiate pinning before you case). You can however cold shock a casing after your casing layer colonizes but you most likely wont have to do this

In reply to:

If this is the case, can I still dunk my cakes before casing?

You could, but it isn't necessary when you are casing.
dunking is mainly for re-saturizing cakes after flushes therefore replacing the moisture that the fruits took.
