Can you have too much humidity with cakes?????
    #645188 - 05/25/02 09:05 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

I just birthed some cakes today I didn't spray or dunk but just put them in these funky ass glass flower vases with wet perelite.{All seperate.}I was expecting a little mist on the glass but the glass is totally fogged with beads running down.I have no drips on the cakes cause the vases are fucked up shaped and the water runs down.I was wondering if you can go too high with the humidity?????

Definetly. Your at the point where you should lower the humidity to 90% or so in my opinion. Having the side of the glass dripping with condensation means your rH is 100%. I would use a bigger terranium. ANd be sure to fan out your vase or whatever 3 times a day or so. This will make sure there is plenty of air exchange, which is crucial right now for where you're at.

Condensation can also be caused by a tempurature difference between the air inside the vase and the air outside. As long as the condensation is going back into the perlite and not dripping on the cake or causing trapped puddles which will attract contams I wouldn't worry too much about it. You could put a little peroxide (about 10% peroxide/water) with the water in the perlite to protect from some contamination.
