Mexican Cakes

By Brooklyn and Camie

3 Types

  • There are a lot of cakes in Mexico, but 3 of the main types are Rosca de Reyes, Chocolate Jalapeno Cake, and Tres Leches Cake.

Rosca de Reyes

  • Although this cake is supposed to be round, it is an oval shape, so that it serves more at big parties.
  • Decorated with slices of crystallized or candied fruit colors.
  • This tradition of eating together and sharing a Rosca de Reyes bread with a hot chocolate is to remember the Holy Kings.

Chocolate Jalapeno Cake

  • This is a chocolate cake that is sweet, yet has a spicy kick.
  • A cake that has chocolate all over, with Jalapenos chopped up inside, and sliced on the top.

Tres Leches Cake

  • Covered with evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, and whole milk.
  • Favorite trick at celebrations
  • Sponge cake soaked in a "milk syrup"
