this popped up now, but I have to mention that the spore shape in Exidia is allantoid, like sausages. Tremella has broadly ellipsoid to globose spores, a better match with the description of this obs..

Not T. foliacea

I agree that it is not leafy enough. Tremella foliacea is often soft ball sized or larger and almost Sparassis-like, but gelatinous.
