will spraying the water and peroxide do anything to the shrooms that aren't contaminated?

From the pics, it looks like you either birthed the cakes a bit prematurely, or have allowed water buildup on top of them. You definately have some contam growing there. What I did was to cut the contam out of the cake with a sterilized exacto knife with my first batch. the best bet is to probably throw them out and start over, although I was okay after cutting out the contam. (at least they didn't make me sick or worse.) Whether you go with the H2O2 tek or the knife tek, watch closely and make sure you inspect your shrooms closely to make sure you got it.

don't freak out yet.
that yellowing is from shroom piss, i.e. metabolic wastes.
prolly had a bit too much water content at a high temp or stayed in the jars too long.
it should not spread nor really affect your cake otherwise.
a little surgery to remve the damaged mycellia and cover the spot with damp verm. & you'll be ok.
