Dunk tek, split the cakes inhalf or not?
    #885513 - 09/16/02 11:20 AM (15 years, 9 days ago)

I know this guy who is getting ready to birth a few cakes and is going to dunk them immediately afterwards. These cakes are going to be cased when they come out of their water bath. He was wondering if it would make a difference in the fruiting if the cakes were split in half before they went into the water? Or would this be a mistake?

Honestly, unless the cakes are very dry, I don't think dunking before crumbling and casing is necessary.

This is one subject which I disagree with Mickey on. My friend always dunks even when casing and the results are better IMHO. My friend has never broken the cakes up though but I guess it might serve to hydrate better I dont know.

You're trying to compare apples and oranges.. :smile:  An intact cake does not have the same properties as the same volume of crumbled cake.

When you say apples and oranges, do you mean that crumbling is by far the way to go? This guy's intensions were to cut each cake in half, then case each full cake (the 2 halves) individually in small tins. Then put about six individual tins in a terrarium.
So,
1. Should he crumble?
2. Should he crumble before or after he dunks?
