Now that you've picked it off, do a dunk and roll. Dunk the cakes underwater in a bowl/pot for more than 12 but less than 24 hours, and put them in the fridge. Take them out the next day, roll them in fine vermiculite (sprinkle some where you missed), and put them back in your terrarium. It's worked like a charm for my friend. Huge shrooms, and tons of 'em!

What are the conditions like? what is your caretaking regiment?
sometimes a cake will use a majority of the nutrients to grow one big fruit, don't know exactly why, but it's very common. tis the mystery of nature.

I had that happen to me with my latest cake.
With no contams and no signs of dry-out, I refused to toss the thing.
After getting some advice (and a couple of months), I moved the cake to where it could get more light and then turned on a small flourescent above it for 9+ hours a day.
Walla!!! I got two decent flushes out of it. I would have never thought it, but we don't know without experimentation, eh? I think I'll try peeling it, and then the dunk and roll just to see what happens, heh heh. It's three and a half months old now....
