This week Roxy Gannon is battling it out with her Tres Leches Cake.

“The words “tres leches” means three milks in Spanish. And true to its name, this cake is made with three different milks. This coconut version of Tres leches cake is popular in my family every year in preparation for Eid. It’s simple to bake and gets its richness from a trio of coconut, sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk. A topping of coconut adds an even yummier boost of sweetness.”

We have 20 staff taking part so expect more than a bakers dozen of delicious cakes over the coming months! To make sure everyone in the department takes part they have the motto “No Bakey, No Cakey!”
