Tres Leches.........Where have you been all my life?

                About a week ago I was in a conversation with My Aussie BFF (Trish). She told me She was going to make a Tres Leeches cake, I thought that sounds good....(but what is Tres Leches cake?)

Well in a nutshell.. It's the best cake ever! A sponge cake covered with 3 milks, Heavy Cream,Sweetened Condensed milk ans Evaporated Milk. (Oh MaMa), and topped with a whipped cream frosting.

I mulled over making this cake myself after our conversation and today I gave in. I searched the web for Tres Leches and came across a recipe I felt I could do.

I want to give props to for having this recipe available as well as Marcella Valladolid. ( you Rock).

  So I took an inventory of what I had in house then it was off to the market to pick up parchment paper evaporated milk condensed milk  heavy cream  and whole milk.( I know 4 milks -Tres leches?)
whole milk is part of making the sponge cake.

4 egg whites along with 1 1/2 cups sugar whisked to stiff peaks

add 4 egg yolks flour and whole milk, whisk till a batter is formed.

Bake at 350 for 32-34 minutes let cool and take out of pan.

add the Tres Leches mixture  (NOTE: The recipe I used called for 3 tablespoons of Grand Mariner.
I used 3 tablespoons of mexican vanilla. I felt it worked).

cover with plastic wrap and put in refridgerator  3 hours or over night.

Take cake out and start on whipped cream.

Frost cake with the cream and dust with cinnamon

Hello you little piece of heaven.....
