Thanks for the replies. This couple is from a foreign country. They say that in their country, cake is cake with little to no icing. I've done cakes for this family many times and they always order - not so sweet cakes. This is just getting to me. I priced the cake just as I would if it was torted, so I guess I'm not losing anything by baking another layer. Probably about the same cost as the buttercream.
