I know it's been said before, here and there, that when you birth your cakes, it's better to dunk them immediately before starting pinning... but there's a bunch of noobs around and I wanna make sure they see this... it's about as standard PF Tek as you can go, granted I add a little somethin-somethin to my recipe, but whatever... still got the verm barrier and everything... to dunk, I simply took off the lid, cleaned off the verm barrier, popped out the cake, filled the jar about half way with distilled, and pushed the cake back into the jar, letting the water spill out into the sink as I did. Then put the lid back on to hold the cake completely submerged. 24 hours later, I opened the jar, poured out what little water was still in there, and birthed the cake as normal. I did 2 cakes birthed straight outta the jar without dunking, and 2 with the dunk, so naturally, the 2 left undunked have a 24 hour headstart on the dunked ones. Still, both have about the same number of fruits on them, but the dunked ones have much meatier fruits. Cake on left is no dunk, cake on right is dunked. Shitty pics I know, but you should be able to see a difference in the thickness of the fruits.
The Birthday Dunk is important!

If the moisture content is correct goin in then I would steer the new ones away from risking contams by handling and dunking. Just more to go wrong for a first timer.
