Tres Leche Cake

We were recently invited for dinner at some friend's house.  The theme was Spanish.  Everyone chipped in and brought something.  I was asked to bring a Spanish dessert, so I chose Tres Leche cake.
This cake is very moist with 3 different milks.....that's where the Tres Leche comes in......  The icing is cream cheese and whipped cream, plus sliced strawberries.
