I have made many fondant covered cakes but ever tried Tres Leche cake. Is it possible to make Tres Leche cake covered with fondant? I'll be using 'open book shaped pan'. Is it possible to make layers also in between the cake OR will it spoil the book shape?? So my question is Tres Leche with layer in between & covered in fondant will it work properly... Don't want to try it directly on party time...

Tres Leche and fondant will not work. The cake is too moist and will melt (dissolve) the fondant.

I have done it, and it works well ( at least I havent had any problems). When I do tres leches cake, its never soaking wet. The only thing is that it could end up being a lil sweeter for some people.
Here is a two cakes of the many tres leches cakes I've made. Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

Addie2580, I cannot THANK YOU enough for this information thumbs_up.gif . I was told that it wouldn't work. I have alot of request for Tres Leche wedding cakes in my area and I've always used buttercream instead of fondant for this reason.

I'm going to have one happy bride to be this afternoon when I call and tell her that we CAN do her cake just like she wanted. icon_smile.gif

I also want to say that your cakes are georgeous.

I've only made Tres Leches in a pan that it was left in (soaking in the milk). How do you make it so that you can take it out of the pan? Just curious because I would love to make one that I could actually decorate!
