Take the cake outside or away from your grow area.
You need to take the cake and cut the green off with a sterile knife or something...make sure that you get it all off.

Then isolate the cake...away from other cakes that you might have.

If you don't have something to put it in...take a 2 liter pop bottle and cut it in half....stick some moist perlite in it.
Then stick the cake in.
Mist it once a day...and fan it several times a day.
If the cake doesn't turn green again....after a week or so....you can put it back in your main fruiting chamber.

Hopefully you have caught it before the green has spread through out the inside of the cake.

good luck!

The mycelium WILL NOT overcome any contamination if it is in the fruiting stage. I recomend you isolate it as Roadkill said and cut off the green.
