I recently did a wedding cake and when I set it up and left, it was in perfect condition. I got a call 30 minutes later from the venue that the cake was leaning and the bride was the one who pointed it out.
I went back and tried to see how I could fix it, but there was nothing much I could do as it was a buttercream cake and it would have taken long to remove the decorations and restack it.
The bride was very laidback about it, didn't whine or complain, and said the cake was gorgeous and more than what she expected etc etc.
She also said that they'll cut the cake right now, and take it inside, so it doesn't have to stay standing for another hour, when the original cake cutting was scheduled.
I was considering giving her back maybe a $100 refund as the cake was leaning forwards, but didn't really look like it might fall.... any thoughts on this?
It was a $300 cake for 75 servings (6/8/10 tiers). TIA!
