Did you say, Tres Leches Parfait?

No way! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a Tres Leches Parfait at the Thee's Continental Pastries at the Farmer's Market in Los Angeles, Ca. Tres Leches cake is one of my favorite desserts of all time and to see it in a parfait form, oh man, it was exciting lol. Tres Leches cake or Pastel Tres Leches is a Spanish "three milk cake" is either a sponge cake, butter or vanilla cake soaked in 3 kinds of milk: condense milk, evaporated milk and and heavy cream. It sounds weird but trust me, its really good.

Thee's Continental Pastries has been featured many times in local news for their delicious and fresh pastries, cakes and more.

Wow, it was really good. It was a layers of soaked cake in milk, home made whipped cream and chopped cherries. I noticed that it didn't taste like the traditional Tres Leches that I'm used to, which is heavy and sweet. This parfait was really light, airy and not too sweet.

My friend Jean got their Chocolate Square Pastry. She said it was delicious so I'll take her word for it lol.

Great desserts with great friends! By the way, Mon didn't eat because she got a root canal and couldn't eat...Pobrecita!

Check out their website for more info
