I think you should request that she provide you with pictures of the cake with the flowers and compare with your pictures then you can decide from there whether to give full or partial refund.  Do you know if the Bride/Groom is requesting a refund or is it her?  Agree with everyone else don't let anyone put anything in or on your cakes, if you are doing wedding cakes more often it's not enough to just explain the risks involved using fresh flowers because at the end of the day you will feel bad if something happens to someone who eats your cake regardless of whether it's your fault or not.  You need to find a system that works for you so that you can use fresh flowers -some wrap the stems of flowers with floral tape others use the straw method and others purchase the flower spikes which is included in the clients price. Either way find a method that will protect the client and their guests from ingesting anything toxic and also to keep you from having others mess around with your cakes.  The florist might not have positioned them nicely making it appear "ugly" to the WP.

Leah_s & Smckinney07:   This is the type of calm, problem solving, professional advise that I read CC forums for. You've already solved the problems, before I've even had them (someday I'll stack, but not yet).

Thanks to all of you that have replied to this topic.  I am over this cake, it was truly a learning experience, I am well aware of what I did wrong.  I have done many wedding cakes but it was my first time using the SPS system.  I also know to get someone's signature before I leave it for who ever does anything to the cake.  Never just drop a cake off.  No, I never dealt with the event planner only the bride and groom.  I have moved on.  Thanks again for all of your replies and words of wisdom.
