MSC: Tres Leche Cupcakes - My Choice!

These Tres Leche Cupcakes were different from the normal cupcakes we eat, but they were packed with flavor and so refreshing! They were very easy to make. You do have to separate six eggs, but don't they look pretty?
The "tres leches" of course stands for three milks. You make a combination of heavy whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk, and evaporated milk and after the cupcakes are done, you poke holes in the cakes and pour the milk mixture in. It takes many pours for them to absorb and enjoy the milk. It makes a mess, but in the end, it is worth it!







After the milk has set in, you top the cakes with some fresh whipped cream and cinnamon. They were delicious!  They were dense, but moist. I'm not sure you actually need to like milk to like these, but I loved them. I hope everyone else did, too.

My son helped a bit so I had to get a picture of him enjoying them :)  Be sure to go check out everyone's take on them this month at http://mscclub.blogspot.com/.
