    caking up

    Hi, could you please explain the meaning of the following sentence:

    She slowly dug her thumbnail along a plank of the seat, provoking a splinter but caking up mold and disintegration instead.

    Thank you

    What I think it is saying is that she wants to get [provoke] a splinter of wood from the seat, but that all she gets is a cake of mould under her nail.
