I'm getting ready to make my first Tres Leche cake for a special friends birthday this weekend and I'm wondering if it can be layered and filled? She has requested this cake with fresh strawberries and I want to put the strawberries inside the cake so that I can decorate the top of the cake.

Thanks for your time!

EvArt, you may want to bake two layers instead of torte, but you will be fine. Just be sure to support the cake as you lower it onto the filling. Use a cake board the same size and scoot or use a cake mover with the board.

One method I am yet to try:

Bake in two pans. Follow your usual cooling process. Return to pans. Pour milks. Refrigerate 6hrs or overnight. Place parchment on board/plate. Place first layer. Fill. Place second layer. Ice.

Yes, try as SCP said, to do two layers instead of torting. You can do something like what's shown here to put it together.

Or you can help yourself with an adjustable pastry ring, like this one.

what kind of icing can you use to cover the cake so the leches does not leak out?
