Pumpkin Tres Leches Cake

I have never made Tres Leches Cake in my life, much less Pumpkin Tres Leches Cake.  But it is Fall and it’s pumpkin everythang season so I had to go for it.  I am fully embracing the Holiday spirit and wanted something different from the usual so this is my modern take on a traditional Latino recipe!  The teaser tweets, Facebook post and video I shared on Instagram built up the suspense and I was dying to taste it.  It smelled sooo good!  I have to admit, I’m pretty proud of myself for this recipe.  It is super easy and tastes good!  I dare you to bring this cake for your holiday potlucks or dinner celebrations.  You will look like a rockstar.
