Using l' instead of la

Using l' instead of la

"Oui, je voudrais une tarte tatin s'il vous plaît, mais je l'aimerais réchauffée et vous mettrez la boule de glace sur le côté"

I am just wondering why it is not "mais je la aimerais réchauffée..." as she is talking about 'une tarte tatin'.

Cheers.

It's because the next word "aimerais" begins with a vowel, then the direct object pronoun (whether it's "le" or "la") would be contracted as l'
