Do what you did evening everything out
The only prob I could think of is
ununiform pinning, and or contam introduction.

Hope all works out
I wouldn't worry to much.

I wouldn't worry at all. As long as your cakes are healthy the only problem that you really have to worry about is uneven pinning. And that's not exactly a real problem, you'll just be getting shrooms in various stages in your casing.

Remember the more soil that you have on top of your cakes the longer it will take for it to colonize, however when you use soil (since it is nutritive) you are also adding to the available nutrients allowing for the possibility of more flushes and more shrooms.

More Substrate = More Shrooms

Thicker Casing Layer = Longer Colonization = More Substrate (see above equation)

If you case using a non-nutritive substance (such as vermiculite) then the equation isn't true as the verm doesn't actually add to the available substrate base.
