well a couple months ago i found a copy of MMGG and followed that tek with little success. you can see the terrerium i built below and after having been to this site decided it would be better to go perlite and tote tub(not to mention cheaper now im BROKE)also you can see my cakes seemingly dying or contaminated (you decide) i didnt see any pics like this in the contam's faq but read some posts about myc. piss but didnt see any photos of or real hard info about it.my belief as of right now is i mixed the substrate too dry causing this.

Roll those cakes in some vermiculite and spoon a little on the top. Casing your cakes will keep them from getting so dried out, and supposedly helps fight contams. Looks like you built a nice chamber there, good work!
If they are indeed dried out you can always give them a 12-24 hour dunk in the fridge with no harm, then roll them in some verm. Casing is sort of like mulching plants, it will hold in the moisture and protect the cake from some things in the environment.

nice way of putting it cam. give them the dunk and roll then fruit them and you will have much better results. give them air exchanges and misting as much as you can, this will also help tremendously.
good luck
peace
