Could I use my old cake and break them down to make a shoe box?

Fixed that for you :p

Definitely not recommended. If the cake is spent it wont be adding much beside inoculum to the shoebox. As its covered with mold spores and various bacteria you would be inoculating with those too.

if you want to experiment with this then you can try some combination of these:

cut the entire outside surface off the cakes, you might be left with quite a bit less, don't sweat it
blast them with a kitchen sink sprayer or run them under fast-moving tap water
grind or blend them with some fine dry verm or oven dried worm castings to make a spawn powder
use a very low spawn ratio, like 1:1 or even less
combine cakes and ideally make sure they're from the same gene pool
skip the spawning and cut them into flat cakes about 1-1.5" thick and case
add a few pinches of wood ash to your bulk and/or casing to sweeten it a bit (good practice regardless of what you're doing IMO)

it's definitely possible and also likely to contam or do nothing. too many variables to know for sure, strength of the culture, cleanliness of the cakes, number of finished flushes, etc.
