Yeah, that's what they call the "wandering complaint", when one complaint doesn't work they move on to the next one.   The best way to avoid disapointment or confusion in the future is to have a clearly outlined design on a contract that they sign off on. We don't do a sketch for every cake (we only sketch when it's an unusual design or if they feel like they really need to see one) but we do fill out an order form with the flavor, sizes, and description of the design...
Are they paying for these samples? It's one thing for you to do a practice round or 2 on your own, but if they requested and are receiving samples or trial run cakes from you, they should be paying for these.
Sounds like the cream cheese icing was way too loose and runny, which is common for cc icing to get that way. It's really easy to add too much liquid or not have the right ratio of cream cheese to sugar- if you're going to use cream cheese icing, it needs to be shelf stable so that it hold up well to heat and decorating. Here's the cc icing recipe we use, and it works great- http://www.earlenescakes.com/icings.htm- although we use all butter instead of shortening and it...
Yes. Yes.  If they aren't willing to pay your prices, they're not your customer. Period.
This. is. AMAZING.
While it's true there's room for improvement on your cake (who can honestly say they don't need to improve in some way?! Not me!), I think you did a nice job on it. Was it the best TT shape? No, but your execution of the other elements was pretty good! The fondant covering on all three tiers is very clean and smooth, the fondant pearls look good, the bow on the front is very nice. Yes, the zebra stripe pattern should be going more vertical rather than horizontal. But...
It looks good! I agree on the size of the flower arrangement on top, it definitely needs to be smaller and more proportionate. Definitely make sure you do your research before placing any type of fresh flowers on a cake. The florist most likely will not be aware that certain flowers should not be placed on a cake (at least that has been our experience) so you will have to make sure you know what type of flowers the bride is ordering for the cake, and tell her and the...
What the???
It should be fine. 86 degrees is not that bad, many people have done cakes outside in much warmer temps! Especially if it will be in the shade. And the fact that it is chilled and covered in fondant will help too, fondant will protect the buttercream under it. If you are still concerned, the only other option would be to have them keep the cake indoors until the reception starts, so it is not sitting out the whole time during the ceremony too.
Those South Park ones are awesome! My DH would love those!
