I mentioned it to the woman behind the bakery counter, Asuncion, and she immediately came out and removed it. As she did, she offered me a bite of anything she had. When she offered the second or third time, I asked for a taste of tiramisu, which she carefully sliced off for me.  It ended up being a full (thin, but full) slice of espresso-custard-ladyfinger goodness.
