TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A Florida bakery claims faulty cake pans created a dessert disaster and has taken the pan-maker to court.
Alessi Bakeries of Tampa says a new, undisclosed component in pans the bakery bought caused the pans to warp, ruining $120,000 of their Tres Leches cakes.
The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/2t1HDyn) reports Alessi paid $5,000 for about 35,000 pans from US Foods Inc. Once the cakes were baked, the pans wouldn’t support the weight of the cakes and became deformed.
Tres Leches is a sponge cake soaked with a mixture of three milks: evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream.
