Hi - I have a client that is requesting several carved cakes. One of the types of cake he would like is a Tres Leches cake. Help! I've never made one and it seems by soaking the cake so much I would not be able to carve this....? Has anyone else had experience with this cake and if so, will you please share your tips.
One of the items on the display will be a shoe box, so I'm thinking maybe I can use that flavor for the shoe box, but does the cake hold up well under fondant?
Also, what is a killer filling for this? Caramel?
Any input will be most appreciated as this is a very special client and I want everything perfect!! Thanks.
I wouldn't carve a Tres Leches cake, too wet, but very delish. Probably my most fav cake.
Does it need a filling? It is sinfully delish the way it is. I call it my diabetic comma cake.
No, do not carve a tres leche cake.
It's best that you tell the client what works for sculpting. There are many flavors that won't work simply because they are too soft or too moist.
Thanks for the info - that's what I assumed, but wanted to double check before I got back to him! Looks like I'll need to make one for myself to eat up!
