I have done some research and the closest thing I could come up with was a brain mushroom I think that's what it was called. Anyone know what this is? There were 4 or so growing on and near the base of a tree. The one pictured was probably 3/4th the size of a basketball or so. Btw the part in lower right is where I touched it with my shoe and it smooshed in really easy. Thanks!

Maybe this: White Jelly Roll
Urnula craterium (Sarcosomataceae)

Leotia lubrica (Leotiaceae)

Ductifera pululahuana (Exidiaceae)
DESCRIPTION
Flattened, fleshy, overlapping, gelatinous, white
when young, turning cream to yellow with age.
ECOLOGY
This fungus can be found growing on the
decaying hardwood of trees.
FIELD NOTES
When fruiting bodies are clustered together
they closely resemble a brain.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Here is a new pic I took today. Someone or something smashed the one I took a pic of the other day. For some reason the cemetery has pylons around these growths of fungus. Anyone know why they might do that? Also after looking up white jelly roll fungus I'm not sure if that's what it was or not but I'm def no expert.
