How do YOU eat a napoleon?

Ok, what's the trick?
I've tried:
-Fork and knife
-Spoon
-Taking the top lid off and continuing with a spoon.
-Hands and mouth, like a sandwich!
-Turning it on the side and using a spoon.

Doesn't really work too well...

What do YOU do?

Harry it is an awesome desert. Look in my Ukranian thread for it.

And no there is no good way to eat it. As you can see by my avatar, which clooks very much like my self, the crubs are always all over my bird.

Whoa! How is it possible not to have even heard about this wonderful french cake/dessert?

It's just puff pastry crusts filled with a very rich and creamy pastry cream flavored with lots of vanilla and rum. Not too sweet.

My husband never knew of this dessert either until I made it for him, and now it's on his top three list!

It looks like this and a good one is out of this world. It is quite difficult to eat delicately. I recommend the following:

Place the napoleon in the center of a round or square plate. Place a napkin next to it. Pour a glass of milk. Pick up the milk, plate and napkin and move to a private space where you are alone. Pick up the napoleon in one hand and take a bite. Wash down with milk. Repeat as needed.

Hahaha!
But I'll have to arrest you on the milk. Black coffee is the only legal thing to have with a napoleon

Easy. I put in a bowl, take a fork, and bash it into pieces.

Then I take said fork and eat it with that. It absolutely ruins the prettiness, but it's a practical approach.
