We can only guess that using skim milk in the Tres Leches cake absolutely rendered it inedible. We took one bite and it was so awful that we put the rest down the garbage disposal. Those who have mad this cake successfully; what kind of milk did you use? I always buy Duncan Hines products as we like them the best. They are moist and delicious. But his Tres Leches was a complete disaster!


"Made from scratch" texture

"Made from scratch" texture

When baking cakes, cupcakes. any type of brownies using mixes, I always add a box of dry instant pudding mix in batter (depending on flavor of cake mix). You will surely get rave reviews from family and friends. I have never been disappointed in results. Texture is like "made from scratch" every time.
