Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leches Cake is a very moist cake filled with a mixture of “milks.” It is a favorite Mexican and South American Dessert. This recipe was found online and reviewed by many people that claimed to be Tres Leches experts.   The Cake preparation includes 3 parts: the cake, the filling, and the frosting.  Tracy has made this cake several times.   If I want to make Samantha’s day, I make this cake.  It is her favorite and one of Scott’s as well.   It is time consuming, but worth it for the cake lovers in your life.
