Yikes, bummer you got into the middle of this to be sure!
Sounds like this wedding coordinator got slipped a tip and didn't earn it
I wonder if this MOB realizes how ridiculous it sounds that she apparently left all details on the wedding cake for the wedding coordinator (or whom ever at the venue) to decide upon? Sounds weird that someone would say "Please order me a cake from ABC Bakery... I am too overwhelmed to decide on flavors, decoration or size."
The sad part about this is that really it sounds like the venue is at fault. They should have made sure that all the things were taken care of. If she in fact paid for a cake, how did they even come up with a price for it??
bakeacakea - you handled it well, if you do decide to return MOB's voicemail or take a call from her I would just send her along and tell her that you are not a part of the equation in a firm way so that she gets the message.
