Pierce top of hot cake every 1/2 inch with long-tined fork, wiping fork occasionally to reduce sticking. Carefully pour whipping cream mixture evenly over top of cake. Cover and refrigerate about 3 hours or until chilled and most of whipping cream mixture has been absorbed into cake.

    Expert Tips

    Instead of rum in the cake, use 1 tablespoon rum extract plus enough water to measure 1/3 cup. In the topping, substitute 1 teaspoon rum extract for the rum.
    In Spanish, tres leches means "three milks." The milk trio in this recipe is whipping cream, whole milk and sweetened condensed milk.
    To toast coconut, spread in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered at 350°F 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
    To toast pecans, spread in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered at 350°F 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
