I'm getting ready to plant my first cakes in a few days and I have no idea what would be the best technique to use... If any one has any advice please give it to me.

Read the cultivation FAQs, try the PF tek and don't listen to the people who advocate casings (it's quite a bit more involved than cakes from a temp and humidity control perspective). If you run into problems then for god's sake DO A FORUM SEARCH. 95% of the time when I ran into trouble with my first grow, and I had a question I did a search and found that someone had already made a massive post about it.

Make about a dozen cakes, see the yields you get off of those, and that should give you the hunger to try the more advanced casings for the higher yields. But definitely stick to the PF tek for starters just so you can get a basic feel for the process.

I always recommend fruiting as a cake for the first time grower. it gives you an idea on how things are suppose to go.
