Tips

Tres Leches Cake Frosting

Tres Leches Cake Frosting

I recently made this cake and after it cooled in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours i found it still very moist to frost. I used the Whiped Cream Chesse frosting and microwaved it for 1 minute and poured it in the center and around the cake i pipped it with the star tip.


Trifle filling toppers

Trifle filling toppers

I use the different types of glazes in between each layer of cakes for my trifles: chocolate and white cakes, layers of fruit, whip cream and various glazes in between each layer and topped off with whipped cream, fresh berries and the final layer of chocolate glaze. Everyone loves the trifles and the beautiful presentation of the dripping glazes going down the sides of the trifle bowl.
