This month’s Supper Club theme was Ocho de Mayo, so it was all Mexican food. I’ve always wanted to try making a tres leches cake, so I figured this would be the perfect occasion to do it. It was an insanely delicious cake. The only thing that I wasn’t prepared for was that the cake would take a while to absorb the milk mixture. Give yourself a good 45 minutes for it to soak in before you frost it. This is a moist and delicious cake that is sure to be a big hit at any party.
