Tres Leche Cake ~ Semi Homemade Style

1 box (18.25 ounces) butter recipe or white cake mix, prepared according to package directions
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
1 can (7.6 ounces) Nestle Media Crema (table cream) or whole milk
1 - 8oz Tub Cool Whip or
1 pint whipping cream + 2 - 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
Sliced Fresh Fruit optional for garnish
(strawberries, pineapple chunks, Mandarin oranges and kiwi's or whatever fruit you want.)

Prepare the cake mix according to package directions, adding the ingredients specified on the box. Prepare a 9-by-13-inch baking pan and bake the cake, again according to the package directions, until done, about 30 minutes. When cake is done, remove it from the oven. While cake is still warm, using a toothpick or wooden skewer, prick cake all over (every 1/2 inch). In a large glass measure, stir together condensed milk, evaporated milk and whole milk and slowly pour over cake, distributing evenly. (The cake should absorb all of the milk if it is poured slowly.) If you dont want a really we cake use only half of the milk mixture. Allow cake to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap or foil, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour or until well chilled. Finish frosting the cake with cool whip or fresh whipping cream, garnish with fruit and chill until ready to serve.

If using fresh whipping cream, which I recommend. Pour into a bowl and whip on high until stiff peaks form. Dont forget to add the powdered sugar to the whipping cream as you whip.

*Nestle Media Crema - is found in the Latin isle of most grocery stores. I get mine at Superwalmart.
