Tres leche cake is one of the best cake I have had .Tres leche means three milk cake A sponge or a butter cake soaked in three milks and topped with whipped cream .This is actually baked in a 9 ×13 pan but since It was made for a birthday I wanted to frost it completely with whipped cream so I used a 9 inch cake tin .This cake is soft and very moist..Its easy to make and utterly delicious and you can never go wrong with this. Have baked this many times and we love it..I had mentioned in my birthday cake post that I will be posting this soon but it completely forgot about it. Thought of posting this today as my little space turns 4 years old.
