Also, if this is a contam, could it spread to other cakes in my terrium. If so, what should I do to try and save this cake and prevent others from contamination?

PappaKaps -
I had the same problem with my jars - I made a very wet, sticky, substrate, and when I flipped them - a lot of my substrate stuck to the bottom of the jar. About your situation though - does the cake smell at all?
If you're worried about contamination - I would suggest making a small 'sickbay' for the cake - and keeping it away from your others. Here you can let it grow without worry of infecting your other cakes - to be on the safe side - you could brand the area on that cake that looks dark - get a nail red hot - and touch it to those areas that look suspect.

Let me know though - does it smell at all?

no, my friend smelled it as soon as we took it out of the jar, and he said it smelt mushroomy, just like the others. I have him in a separate container with one other cake right now, I'll let ya know how it goes.
