Hi msmeg! I'm so sorry about the mishap. I'm sure once you make an anniversary tier top, she will be fine and in fact, she/or mother of bride might even apoligolize for putting you through all the mess of confusion. You did all that you were responsible for and that is all that matters. If it is stated on the contract that once the cake is delivered and set up than you should clear yourself of any conflict or interest or any other confusion about the cake/s. But the bride would have to sign the contract agreeing to if any thing happens to the cake, i.e. the cutting and removing the anniversary tier or whatever other trimmings etc. then it become the bride's responsible of apointing someone to cut the cake and have another person hand out the cake so therefore, you are totally clear from all of the mess and confusion. It is stressfull enough making and delivering and assembling the cake and you do not need any extra baggages from the bride or anyone else at the reception hall. I would have done the same of making and given the bride another top tier cake for the 1st anniversary cause you always want to keep a good reputation for yourself.
