3 leches is a common cake in my culture...I've never done a wedding cake, but I always make 3 leches.
We had my daughter's 'quinceanera 4 years ago and the cake was all 3 leches. Let me see if I can post a pic.
Also, I believe you can not cover with fondant since it's a very humid cake and the fondant would melt.

Here's a pic of the cake.
Good luck
Edited to add: Please make a note that I did NOT make this cake...I ordered this cake for my daughter's quinceanera.

Do you use regular BC, or do you use a stabilized whipped cream? icon_confused.gif

When I make 3 leches I always use whipped cream and I add a small package of Jello instant vanilla pudding to add consistency. Hope that answered you question.

You're welcome Icer101....but, you know long time ago someone here posted that she figured out a way to cover a 3 leches with fondant, but she never came back to tell us how she did it. I'm guessing that you can try to NOT make it too wet, cover it with buttercream and then fondant...I'm just guessing.
Good luck! icon_smile.gif
