    This came out very oddly for us. The sorbet absorbed into the ladyfingers despite being applied while frozen. Thus the ladyfinger bottom crust was soggy. The eggnog mixture froze grainy and crystallized and not smooth like we expected. We had to let it thaw upwards of 30 min to be able to slice it. We did enjoy the flavor and the combination of flavors with the sorbet but the textures were unpleasant.
