Three milk cake, otherwise known as Pastel Tres Leches, is a cake traditional to Latin American countries. You would think that this cake would be soggy but it does not come out that way. The cake soaks up the mixture and holds it in and keeps it from being soggy. For decoration you can fruit, berries and nuts to the top and sides of the cake to give it that extra special look.
