I saw on a commercial online where they made a two layer tres leches cake. They frosted it and put fresh fruit on top.
I like the idea of putting strawberries in the filling, then almonds on the side.
So my questions are:
1) Can you use round pans and stack this to make a two layer cake? Any tips for doing this?
2) What type of frosting do you use? Buttercream? Whipped? Something else?
3) Does the cake leak? Seems like a silly question but again, being a tres leches cake virgin, I want to know what I may be dealing with.
Thanks so much for your help!
1- You can most definitely make this into a round cake you can make it two layers,fill and stack.
2. I love the Bakers Pride or Pastry Pride I forget the name but I find it at Smart and Final..You could use any icing you like.
3. If won't leak if you don't poke holes. Like I mentioned if you take the thin layer of cake( don't know the proper name for it) you sort of unveil the natural holes of the cake so that will soak up the milks...
Another way you can do it is that you take out the cake, line the pan with plastic wrap, put the cake back in the pan, pour the milk over it, cover it and let it sit in the fridge overnight.
I hope this helps.
pasteles de inglaterra, I will post my results if I make it this weekend. If not this weekend def. soon. I need to try it out so I can add it to my menu.
The texture of the cake, as best as I can describe it, was custard-like. It wasn't smooth like custard, but kind of like a bread pudding type custard. It wasn't too bad. And the longer it sat in the fridge, the tastier it got.
I don't know how this would be using a cake box mix. I'd think that kind of cake would get all mushy, and not in a good way.
I think using a cake mix with this type of recipe you will end up with a soup at the end.
I think this cake must have originated when the woman "baked" a cake over direct flame, so the cake was very tough. I think the adding of the milks gave the cake a sweet taste and softened what must have been a hard exterior. Otherwise it might have been not so tasty. Meringue and fruit to decorate due to their abundance.
