I googled too. The page I found was kind of amusing and said that the fungus is pretty much harmless, *phew*. I've never had it, but I'd probably live and let live. The areas I have mulched are kind of Dead Man's Zones anyway, so I'd call it a colourful accent fungus to make people think I meant it to be there, LOL.

Yea they say it's harmless and will go away on it's own. I never had it last year but used a different mulch this year.

I know it wasn't cedar but I still have a few bags outside I'll check later when I go out.
