( It's hard to resist the pull of a good tres leches cake. Made with cake that's soaked in a number of milks, it's the kind of treat that melds cakey and creamy worlds—giving you one heck of a dessert. Here's one version to add to your list: Half Saints makes Tres Leches Cake, and it might just be the prettiest one we've seen!

We love how the edible flowers and pistachios stand out against the stark-white cream!

Half Saints' Tres Leches Cake is made extra-special with three kinds of milk, whipped cream that's piped into wispy clouds, edible flowers, and pistachios. Inside, it's as moist and milky as you can get—be prepared to have second servings! This cake is available in the Bonita (P230) and TLC Fiesta (P880) sizes—the former is great for solo eaters, while the latter is served in a red tin and is best shared.

You can also get it in the solo-portioned Bonita size.
