It's not a cake in the oven. Well, yeah it's a yeast cake, but you could probably ferment it in the back of your pickup truck and be fine, as long as you gave it 24 hours of stability before racking to the bottling bucket.
Not that I actually recommend fermenting in the back of your truck. Just stretching a point for the sake of humor. Cheers!
