Looks like most of your options are okay, including the correct “dual” modes and “ingress” mode in the right place.  However, I think you need to adjust your bandwidth and overhead settings, otherwise Cake isn’t reliably in control of the bottleneck queues.  Try these to begin with:

… bandwidth 850Kbit conservative dual-srchost nat

… bandwidth 15Mbit conservative dual-dsthost nat ingress

That should give you correct operation, and you can fine-tune from there.
