CONTAMS!
    #1575667 - 05/25/03 02:21 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

contaminated cake - it is growing 6 mushrooms and pinning heaps! Reckon if my friend burried it in the garden somewhere (please recommed a place) it would grow and he could enjoy the fruits? Or will he get sick.... he also picked 7 mushrooms off the bottom whilst the contam (small grey/purple area on top) was there ... can he eat those too?

imo you can eat.
but usually don t
take the mushes.and cut it with a clean knife.look in it.if small green dots are too much trash it(wait some reply for the grey part)
if it was only on the top.take out that part and case it.

it's best not to eat from it....it depends on how far along it is...a small spot is can be removed with a sterile knife tip...if it's most of the top....fugu is right, cut it open and see how far along it is....as for eating the mushrooms from that cake... best if he didnt...some of these contaminates can kill you.... there is also a possibility it's just bruising/overlay...if you can isolate it and watch to see what develops you may find it is nothing at all...

Well, it is always interesting how non-descriptive a person can be when it comes to contamination.
Purple - Could be Lipstick mold or the forming of Pink mold
Grey - could be Bacterial blotch or pit

The purple is probably topical, but the grey is probably all throughout the cake.
Who knows if he can eat the girls or not because the mold or bacteria can't even be established.
In the future, try to be a little bit more descriptive i.e size, shape, color, smell, rate of spread. All of these help in identifying.
