heart shaped bread mishap

I shaped some dough into a batard (a shorter wider baguette, inspired by an episode of ‘Baking with Julia’), and after resting I made three slits. 

But when I was transferring it into the oven, it fell in and folded over itself. I decided to make an extra slit on the bottom piece that was sticking out and baked it all the same (in an enameled cast iron pot). When it came out it was strangely symmetrical and heart shaped. <3 

The crust was perfect and the interior chewy and tender, the holes weren’t as large as I had hope but it wasn’t overly dense.
