Honey won't do much.
You want an incrased fruiting? Use more substrate! This is the easiest and most reliable way to increase your fruiting.

Anno is right (as always :)
The most reliable way to increase your yield (fruiting) is to use a 'highly nutritious' nutritious element in your substrate.

I have found that wild bird seed gives excellent results. If the substrate used 100 gms of dry birdseed, I normally end up with about 40-50 gms of cracker dry cubes.

Impressive efficiency India,

Like Anno says,
More substrate = more shrooms.

I dont neccesarily mean bigger cakes, just more of them.  
If you do more cakes you can start experimenting and tweaking your formulas and teks slightly. Perhaps you might do something wrong on some of them, but hey, its the best way to learn.
