Don't toss it, if it's really white, it probably isnt contaminated, if it smells and has more of a grey colour, or anything else then white (except for the blueing you can get from handling it to much) then you can toss it.

your cake is fine, its only been 12 hours.. the fuzzy white stuff is probably just perfectly healthy mycelium, isolate it and give it some time. Just dont chunk it though! You never know what you could get off it.

Id say lower the humidity a little too, that could be why. Also make sure they get a little light so it starts to pin otherwise its gonna remain in vegetative growth, no pins!
