Meanwhile cut the candied fruit into strips.

Knead, banging it down on the floured tabletop, to make it soft and pliable. Form the dough into a ring or rosca. Insert the baby figurine.

Place the rosca on a greased backing tray. Decorate it with the strips of candied fruit. Leave the rosca once more to fluff up again.

What’s in Tres Leches Cake?

Heavy whipping cream

How to Make Tres Leches Cake

This three milk cake is so easy to make! The cake itself is similar to your average cake recipe; the one major difference is that there’s no oil or butter in the batter. Instead, you have to whip egg whites until soft peaks form and then gently fold them into the batter.

This tres leches cake needs to bake for around 32 to 35 minutes. You’ll know when it’s ready to be taken out of the oven when the center is set but springs back when you gently press a finger into it.

Once the cake is out of the oven, make the tres leches mixture. Just combine the three milks in a bowl and whisk thoroughly to combine.

Then poke lots of holes into the cake with a fork and pour the milk mixture over top. Let the cake chill at room temperature for a few hours before making the whipped cream topping and spreading it onto the cake.

I like the finish my tres leches cake with a sprinkle of cinnamon, but that’s totally optional!
