maybe it's because you've got it under a glass box. Perhaps the moisture from the icing is now trapped in the glass box. Mold and fungus grow in moist, (usually dark) places.

My dummies are decorated in regular BC, they sit out uncovered and I've never had discoloration, bugs or mold/fungus. Some of my dummies have sat out for close to a year.

What you thought was protecting the cake sounds like it's the culprit for fungus growth on your cake.
