I don't know. The cake isn't great. But the MOB had no right to treat you the way she did, either.
If you look, the reason it appears to be leaning is because of the camera angle. The table must be leaning too. Take into account the bright light behind half of the cake, that messes with how things actually are. She said it wasn't absolutely perfect.
If it was per the bride's instructions, then only she should have been able to send it away. I do understand that in the moment, it is difficult to have done everything perfectly or said the right things or come back with a witty comment. I always think of the best things to say too late. It's experience for next.
I love the butterfly cake.
