blue-gray color on cakes?
    #1405031 - 03/24/03 07:14 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

My friend's cake had fully colonized then it got a weird blueish gray stripe down one side of it...... he set the cake aside assuming that it was some kind of contamination. Just this morning, however, he looked at it and a BUNCH of shrooms have started growing on it and the bluegray color seems to be gone. The only discoloration is a little blueing in one corner that just looks like a bruise..... The cake doesn't smell weird or anything. Does anyone have any advice? would it be advisable to try ingesting these? Is there any way to tell if this is some kind of contamination or just a bruise? Any help would be appreciated.......

I am veeeeeeeeeeery far from being an expert, but from all that I've read and the pics I've seen, it's probaly a bit of bruising. 
This one character in a story book my friend is writing squirted just a tiny bit of water on just such blueish-grey.  Most of it diminished, and some went away entirely.

Good luck with it! :smile:

If it's gone, I'd say it was bruising.
I know sometimes color hues are not easy to distinguish but when you see something like that and you don't know what it is, then rub the area in the mycelium with a piece of cotton soaked with some h2o2, if nothing comes out in the cotton piece you should be ok.
