Easy Mini Tres Leches (Three Milks) Cakes

Mini Tres Leches Cakes with homemade whipped cream and cherry.

This was a quick dessert. I already had the vanilla cake wrapped in plastic in the fridge. Originally I was planning on using it to decorate with buttercream, but I just didn’t feel like doing that. What can I say? I change my  mind pretty often. 🙂

Instead I broke the cake into pieces and placed in ramekins and plastic to-go cups for a quick dessert.

For the cake I used the Magnolia Bakery’s vanilla birthday cake recipe.

You can finish off with homemade whipped cream or cool whip and cherries.

The possibilities are endless. How about adding some homemade caramel to the mixture? I might have to try that next.

Enjoy, Bon Appétit, Buen Provecho!
