MSC: Tres Leches Cupcakes

For the month of May, our Martha Stewart Cupcakes Challenge group baked Tres Leches Cupcakes.  This recipe was selected by Lisa of Smiley's Sweets and Creations.  The Tres Leches recipe can be found on page 48 of Martha Stewart's Cupcakes book. 

I found the overall process of making these cupcakes to be fairly simple.  I halved the recipe and still ended up with 15 cupcakes.  The book says the full recipe will make 20 cupcakes.  The book recommended baking the cupcakes in paper lined foil wrappers.  I didn't have any on hand, so I baked the cupcakes in silicone liners.  And I'm so glad I did because they neeeded the extra support once the tres leches mixture was added. 

I LOVED making my own whipped cream.  I had never tried it before.  I thought it turned out fluffy and mildly sweet.   My friend Craig really enjoyed the whipped cream.....

I really liked the flavor of these cupcakes!  I will definitely make them again.  Check back on the 15th of this month when our Challenge Group will be making Strawberry Cupcakes!

Isn't fresh whipped cream the best? I like the way you piped it -- it looks great.
