casing cakes whole & air exchange
    #941279 - 10/07/02 10:49 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

excuse me if these questions are irritating.
just that im sick of learning from my own mistakes. quiet horrable.

1a. lets say some one wanted to make a small casing in a round tupperware container out of one cake. would you get best results leaving the cake whole. or should one break it up/crumble it. cruble it very fine? or in a few big chunks. Im thinking just leave the cake as one big peice.

1b.when casing a large container with many cakes do you personally crumble the cakes into many small peices or large chunks?

2. How would one set up an automated air exchange system. a link will do fine. need to know if one is going to have to drill cut and get fans or what.

Thanks in advance all.

I think it's best to crumble cakes into marble size pieces. Alternatively you could cut the cake in half horizontally and then crumble another cake to fill in the gaps.

as far as humidification I used Shroomgods Cool Mist Humidifier tek , the last one on this page, with great results.

hmmmm. I really like that idea. the best of both worlds.
plz keep your ideas and personal preferneces comming!

and another quick Q.
say someone wants to dunk a PF cake. would you do it something like this.
scrape the top layer of dry verm barrier off and just add say bottled watter to the cake still inside the glass jar for 12- hours.
I remember reading something about scraping off the top barrier layer before dunking.
It is still a good idea to dunk a cake for a few when you are going to use it for a casing?

thanks

What you said sounds right, I don't think its necessary to remove the top layer of verm however.

It also couldn't hurt and probably would be beneficial to dunk a cake that will be crumbled for a casing.

Leave a little verm on the cake it acts like a cushen between the cake and the lid of the jar, it also keeps the entire cake under water should a bubble form.

i have noticed  a little more longevity with casings where the cakes have been dunked prior to crumbling.  could just be me.
