i have read to dunk the cakes before crumbling(24 hours in fridge), case and incubate for 4 days(or so),patch if neccesary, then to the fridge for 12 hours(covered), and to the fruiting chamber.

if you are using the cakes as the substrate then yes dunk, there is no need for all that fridge stuff though. crumble, let the myc start to regrow and then apply your casing layer. give it a couple days until you see the myc starting to show in the casing layer and then fruit. you might need to patch if there are some very aggressive areas.
cold shocking will stall the myc and can lead to delayed pinning, the only temp drop that should take place is when you go from colonizing to fruiting.
best of luck

Definitely dunk (24hrs.) fridge or not it won't make much difference, really. Then prepare casings then incubate 3-4 days During the case run then into the fruiting chamber they go. I'd check them at day three if a light patch is needed on any areas that the myc has broken the surface this is the time to do it. Leave in the incubator one more day then FC that bitch, you may see myc or not. Read my pinning strategy if ya want the complete low down.
