Let’s sat I have fruit ready to be picked. When I start picking I notice some small pins coming up on the cake. Do I just pick what is ready and just put the cake back and letting all fruits to grow or do I need to dunk and roll the cake?

I'd just pick them off and then dunk.

Sometimes the pins will survive a dunk, usually half will abort, so either pick them off so they don't abort and rot on the cake, or leave em and watch to see if they grow or abort, and pick em before they rot, if they live let em mature.

Ok.  That is what I did the first time but I wasn't sure that was right.  What do you guys usually do with the small pins like that?

You can just eat em or use em in the same way you use the full size ones. If your working with agar you can place a pin on the agar plate and it will grow myc that is genetically identical to the pin, that's one way to clone, but most people clone ful sized fruits instead, since you can pick a huge one out of a cluster and the clones will be similar in appearance, size and potency to the original.

 

I save my pins up and make tea sometimes.

I would be hesitant to clone a pin since I don't know its characteristics or if it will be prone to abort etc...

 

I save them for making chocolates.

If you don't want spores everywhere take it now.
The others will probably be ready sooner than you think.

It's not necessary to wait until the veil breaks if they are about the same size.

Yes, what Roc said.

I had a great flush years ago but I had to leave for the weekend.

When I got back, there were spores all over the place!  What a mess.

 

If you would like, take a spore print so You can be self sufficient.

That's why I said that most people clone full sized fruits, so they can pick the characteristics they want the next gen to have. I didn't say it very clearly I guess, kind of a word salad.
