There is a very light pale orange color on some of my cakes. Is this contamination? This color seemed to appear right after I dunked them in milk.

And I quote-
"It is very possible
to accidently culture some serious nasties, so exercise caution and good sence. The general rule is to treat all brightly colored contams, especially purple, pink, orange, and yellow as dangerous. Don't confuse yellowish mycelial
exudate/metabolite with nasties. It's normal and common to see them"

orange, congratulations,I have never seen that, and I have cultured at least 11 different contaminates, now you only need to breath it, and find out what disease you contract, if you directly link a bacteria to a disease, then you can study what can kill the bacteria, (isolating organic chemicals, etc.) you could win a nobel prize or something. Noone does this though, trust me. Make sure you have a supply of acid, because acid is the only sure cure against contaminants in a human's body, but who made that study?

One question remains...

Do cakes stay crunchy in milk?

Is it more of a peachy kind of color, like a mix of light orange and pink, and it's on top of the mycelium?

If so, I've had it before, and it's usually old mycelium. How old are the jars (roughly)?

Its not really pink at all, and this color lays under the mycelium. The cakes are pretty old, almost 2 months. Its been there for a while now, at least 3 weeks with no changes. I suspect its from the milk dunking.
