Default Ale with lager cake

I have a wyeast 2035 cake thats sitting under a batch of light lager for a few weeks now, i want to bottle and then pitch a new batch. Can i pitch a honey blonde or other ale on it? the coolest i can ferment is 14. C, I would use another KIT of all grain WORT

If I understand these things correctly, which I may not, if you use a lager yeast at ale temperatures, you will get weird flavors at the worst or a steam lager at the best.

14C is the top of the temperature range for Wyeast 2035. The worst you will do is ruin a beer. If you are willing to take that risk, give it a try!

I am sure someone who is saner about these things will step in now and tell you exactly why you should or should not try it.
