If you take a partialy colonized cake, and expose it to light,
will it start to pin?

not necessarily.
the mycelium has to be at a state which is ready for fruiting. This involves the proper humidity, fresh air, sunlight, and amount of water available.

interesting.. i just made two new casings on 12/13, both 50/50 verm/peatmoss. both casings contained one 1/2 pint jar of colonized substrate. One casing i split the substrate in half and left some of the mycelium stick out the top of the casings; the other casing i crumbled and buried in 1/2 " of casing layer. The crumbled casing shows no signs of fruiting after 3 days, but the other casing with 2x 1/2 jar in half, has about 10 pins growing rather well already.

just food for thought, but i was trying to get some mature fruits before christmas.

yes, eventually.
i routinely give my cakes light from inoculation on, and usually see pinning by the 19th-21st days, and they are usually finished colonizing by 14th day.
