Where I live we have two sizes of canned condensed milk so what size or measurement is the condensed milk in this recipe please.

Wow this sounds delicious. I'm too busy to try it this week but I'll definitely try it in the future and rate it. Thanks for sharing...
I made this for my husband for his birthday, and he loved it! I will definitely make again.
trfoster , wow great ,im glad u guys luved it ,thabks for letting me know how good it turned out
Hey Letty. I made two of these last night. One for my husband's work and the other for mine. Over all the cake was very easy to prepare. I had the Negative Nellys telling me it is a very hard cake to perfect and not to try it. I was out of heavy cream so I had to wait to get more, but after tasting it my husband just took it to work w/o the frosting. There was a debate over which co-workers were older, "true Mexicans" lol, and therefore authorities on how a true tres leche cake should taste and its texture. One thing they all agreed on was that it was the best one they have had anywhere. :o) And again this is without the pretty frosting. One problem I had when I made the 2nd cake was getting the frosting to look thick and spreadable. This was my first time whipping, whipping cream into a frosting. How long shoud it be whipped?? I am in Texas so I am thinking the humidity may have contributed to the frosting not thickening. I am sure I will get a lot more requests for this one. Delicious recipe. Highly recommended.
hi creolecakes, wowim glad you guys liked the recipe , as to the heavy whipping cream ,i have no set time i just whip it till it becomes thick , and yes the heat and humidity does play a part in it , i also have used elite icing like the one h.e,b puts on the cakes ,i buy it at a cake decorating supply store. that hold up pretty good , i have a question , how was the sweetness of the cake ? after u add all the milks . i hope this helps ,and again thank you for trying my recipe and responding.
Hi Letty, I have tried it agian since posting my response on 8/3. I think I have your recipe down pat now. The consistency pefect. The sweetness of the cake perfect. I found my wisk attachment for my mixer, which does a much better job than I could do. It's still humid and it came out perfect this time, plus people told me that they liked the texture of the icing better. I was told the 2nd try was all around better and I think that on the 2nd time I better understood your recipe and followed it more exact than my first try. Great recipe. Everyone kept asking me how easy was it to make. I had to lie. I can't make it seem too easy, right??!! lol Thanks a bunch.
oh thats great ! im happy u figured out the icing . and u and your friends are enjoying the recipe . i enjoy hearing feedback . have a great day .
