Blue Ribbon Recipe

Tres leches cake is a vanilla sponge cake with three types of milk poured over the top. We loved the twist to the classic Mexican dessert in these cups. They are creamy and have all the flavors of a tres leches cake without the work. Since this is a no-bake dessert, it's great for summer. A mixture of whole, evaporated, and condensed milk soaks into the crumbled pound cake. Top with a dusting of cinnamon, whipped cream, and a cherry for an adorable dessert. Tres leches cake is typically a soggy cake and these cups mimic that texture.
