I dunk my cakes before the first flush. This will maximize the fruiting ability of the cake.

Yeah dunking totally rehydrates the cakes. This will allow for maximum fruiting capability. I'd dunk.
In the Advanced Cultivation form, they've been doing experiements with Bleach dunking, something you might want to look into after your cakes give you their first flush.
But for now, I'd just dunk them in bottled spring water as normal.

i've gone both ways,
and i think dunking at birth can benefit most cakes.
