To be honest, I’m not a fan of baking or cooking with pumpkin but Vic insisted I baked him his favorite cake w/pumpkin on it. So, the end result was divine!! We loved them. The cupcakes were so moist and soaked in delicious tres leches. The dense spiced cake taste was to die for and the cool whipped topping was just the perfect touch! If you are a fan of pumpkin pie, then you must try this Pumpkin Tres Leches Cupcakes!
I have made a cake and many cupcakes of tres leches. You can check out my regular Tres Leches Cupcakes Recipe.
