    leenie<3's Note:

    This is SO GOOD! It's a moist, rich, sweet and yummy cake, made with a simple sauce that is poured over it, and slowly seeps into it. Leaving you with heaven in every bite. "Tres Leche" means three milks therefor, this cake has three different types of milk: condensed, evaporated and regular milk. The top of the cake is ugly, because you have to poke holes in it, so I like to top it with whipped topping, and berries. Try it!

      This is good, but I think I'd like one with a homemade cake base better and real whip cream on top better. This one tasted kind of chemically.

      This cake was fantastic. I made it for my co workers and the reviews were all 5 star. Prepared as directed, using Cool Whip for the top. I also had sliced fresh strawberries for those who liked fruit on theirs. The strawberries were a great addition. Will be making this again for sure.
