I wanted to share a recipe for Tres Leches Cake parfaits. For the bridal shower I helped co-host, I volunteered to make the dessert. I knew Tres Leches cake was the bride’s favorite, but I didn’t want to serve it the usual way, sliced on plates with a fork. So, I made parfaits.
I used a Martha Stewart recipe for Tres Leches Cake. I baked it the night before the party and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. A few hours before the party, I made the whipped cream and assembled the parfaits in small, stemless wine glasses.
At the bottom of each glass I put a small dollop of whipped cream, then a small square of cake, more whipped cream, another square of cake, topped with whipped cream. I sprinkled a garnish of toasted coconut and a touch of nutmeg. I found a set of adorable bride and groom cupcake toppers and stuck them in the center of the dessert.
Who can resist saying “I do” to this dessert?! Oh, so, fab.
