can my cakes and my casings share the same fruiting chamber or will the humidity differ for one or the other.

for primordia formation, the humidity can be the same.
but casings need less humidity than cakes after that.

Cakes need 95% humidity, casings need 85%-95% humidity so one or the other will not be satisfied. Trust me, 2 girlfriends under one roof will create a problem  :tongue:

I have seen many growlogs with both in, and i have personally grown casings and cakes together. I didnt notice a dramatic difference, but this could be due to my lack of experience so far.

Sure - you can.

But, if your rh is set for cased substrate, the cakes will not do as well.

On the other hand, if your rh is set for cakes, the cased substrate may get a bit waterlogged (not a good thing - if excessive).

Trade off would be a setting between the two optimal rh's.

What you should do is run your cakes out. Make a couple small casing's, like two 1/2 pints per casing, get some experience, then forget about cakes and go to casing's. Then you'll only need one chamber and your yields will be much better. Good Luck.
