Have you ever dropped a Tiramisu?

Our cake person today went to Lasalle's Bakery and picked up one of their Tiramisu cakes. She wanted it because she thought it was pretty!!  Indeed it is as the picture from the website shows. With two chocolate dust stars and a nice rim of lady fingers it looks great.  Once you purchase a cake it is always best to carry it on the floor of your car where it will be relatively stable.  It is NOT a good idea to carry it on the seat of the car which tends to lean one way or the other.  It is also very susceptible to sliding onto the floor which our colleague discovered the hard way.
Someone went to Lasalle's!
This is what we were expecting to see!
As you can see, it is no longer that nice round shape with the circle of lady fingers. It was smooshed into an oblong shape against one side of the box.  Our friend was mortified and ran back to get a replacement cake.  That was very nice of her but we remained undaunted by the seeming demise of the tiramisu.  With a little care we managed to slide it away from the side of the box to the center of the cardboard plate it was on.  We tried to reshape it to the circle but that was not going to happen.  Instead we just cut it in slices as much as we could and just served it up. No one had any problems with the deformed slices and it tasted just as creamy and good as any of the previous ones we have had from Lasalle's. So the lesson is there is no need to panic if something goes awry with your cake hour treat.  As long as it stays in the box we'll prop it up and eat it.

And this is what we found after it fell onto the car floor!
We managed to get it back to the center.

We couldn't reshape it any more than this!

So we just cut it up and served it anyway!
The replacement cake thus proved to be unnecessary.  It was a good looking fruit flan from Lasalle's and we saved it for the next day!

Another great cake from Lasalle's as backup!

Great looking flan!

Colofully decorated with fresh fruit!
