Do they look/feel dry? If so, perhaps you should dunk them overnight.

I could definitely be wrong, but it might be an issue of bruising then.

Yes, i'd say bruising... a friend of mine had cakes that did that.. when he put them into the terrarium and they "swelled up" a lot of the blue disappeared. Just keep an eye on it... good luck.

Good to know that blue isnt bad neccessarily. So far I can understand, Blue + White + Brown = good things. Anything else = throw it out....am i correct?

Well, if you already have mature shrooms growing then purple isn't bad either, cause it's just the spores from the mature mushrooms, but the perfect harvest time is before the cap opens up, so... just don't freak out if you have mature mushrooms and some purple haze all over.

I've never heard of this brown color being ok before... can anyone back this up. First time grower here and I thought that some of my cakes were contaminated, but if brown is ok then I think they may be ok.

I'll go another direction.

If it were bruising, it probably wouldn't cover so much area. It does sound like drying. When a cake dries, it takes on a blue / grey tint. After your dunking, expect new growth and healing within a few days.
