So the cakes are colonized but there are no pins? How long have they been colonized?

They have been colonizing...so they are still not colonized or are they completely colonized? If they are colonized, birth them into the fruiting chamber.
If they are not colonized, then there is likely something wrong. Perlite does not work equally well as vermiculite in the substrate.
