I made this for a high school tech week dinner with lots of hungry teens and it went over well. Out of necessity due to lack of ingredients at 10:30pm, I used Devils Food Cake mix and substituted 1/2 tsp fine ground espresso coffee for the instant. I also didn't have cocoa powder, so I used Ghirardelli Chocolate Mocha Cocoa mix instead of cocoa powder (and yes, it was sweetened), so I only used 2 TBL for the cake and 1/4 cup for the frosting (with 2 cups whipping cream and 2/3 cup confectioners sugar). It turned out awesome and I just called it "Chocolate Mocha Tres Leches Cake." I will probably make it the same way next time because the mocha added a nice touch (albeit probably not as traditional). Yum!
