A Florida bakery claims faulty cake pans created a disaster for their desserts and has taken the pan-maker to court.
Alessi Bakery of Tampa bay claims a new, secret element in pans the pastry shop purchased triggered the pans to warp, ruining $120,000 of their Tres Leches cakes.
According to The Tampa Bay Times, Alessi paid $5,000 for about 35,000 pans from US Foods Inc. When the cakes were baked, the pans wouldn’t sustain the weight of the cakes and came to be deformed.
Tres Leches is a sponge cake saturated with a combination of three milks: evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream.
Alessi is seeking damages for the ruined cakes, along with the cost of the pans.
US Foods claimed it doesn’t talk about pending lawsuits.
