Tres Leches Cupcakes with Dulce De Leche Buttercream

It’s Cinco De Mayo week so decided why not pick a mexican dessert. This is a recipe for Tres Leches Cupcakes with Dulce De Leche Buttercream. Tres Leches translate to tree milk cakes is a type of sponge cake soaked with 3 kinds of milk. There are a couple different variations of this cake, one using coconut milk instead of heavy cream as one of the milks and the other is using butter or not in the cake. For this recipe, I used the butter variant and coconut milk, It turned out not so bad however it is more dense. I will have try not using butter next time as it become a very light cake. Overall, pretty straight forward cupcake with an added step of poking the holes and filling with the 3 milk mixtures.
