Oh, wow, here I thought I had invented this recipe! :) I was trying to match a Tres Leches at a restaurant here in Houston and I got pretty close using basically this recipe. I use Betty Crocker Homestyle Frosting Mix instead of whipped cream. It's a marshmallow-ish frosting that's closer to what the restaurant uses. I add heavy cream to the coconut cream/sweetened condensed milk mixture and then I can call it Tres Leches. I've served it as straight Tres Leches for years, and just in the last few years I've started adding coconut. My friend from up north, who grew up with French instead of Spanish, insisted on pronouncing it "Tre-luscious" instead of "Tres Leches"!
