I did the same thing with a couple of cakes. They colonized fine (although it seemed to take a lot longer). I had two. I used one to colonize some rye and made a casing.
The other I birthed into my terrarium. Three weeks and no pinning. It looks heathy as heck but maybe there's not enough water inside the cake. Perlite soaks up water like mad. When I lifted it up it felt very light and airy. Maybe you'll have better luck than me.
