I am new to decorating, also. I would never feel at this point that I could accomplish a paid wedding cake. That said, without pictures of what the cake looked like or what she wanted, I feel that I would probably agree to refund her money, less the delivery fee. What she happy with the taste of of the cake, at least? I am quite sure SOMEONE took a picture of the cake, because as a previous poster said, if it were me--and I were really upset about the cake--I would want a picture to show how "bad" I thought the cake was. Anyway, I have to agree, that i, myslef, would refund her money and chalk it up to a learning experience. This will save your reputation, especially if you come from a small town. Also, the list of "things I learned from this experience" that another person posted was excellent. I am really sorry this happened to you...this is exactly why I am terrified to attempt something like that (although my skills are no way near that level yet).
