Blue Meanie Cakes are Gray
    #3455019 - 12/06/04 04:10 PM (12 years, 4 days ago)

Would it be ok to eat some mushrooms I picked right before this stuff started growing on my cake?
Here is a link to a pic of the cake, its the top pic.

Theoretically, the mycelium can transfer poisons produced by the mold into the fruiting body. I don't know of any actual poisoning of this sort though. If the contamination started from the outside, so you are sure that the amount of contamination was extremely low when you picked the shrooms, then it is probably relatively safe to eat them.

Well, after the mold started growing on the cake, the cap became a lot darker, its shape became somewhat warped as it waved around the circumference of the cap instead of going in a circle, and also the caps cracked on the very top. Are any of these signs that they shouldn't be eaten, or are they still straight?

Now they are starting to smell like my socks, is this normal when you don't refrigerate them?

Yes. If you don't dry them, they go bad very quickly.

And these what you write are signs that you haven't harvested it in time. Harvest the mushrooms when the cap starts to open. Or before that.

Oh, and dont keep cakes that show signs of contamination! Throw them away as soon as possible.
