Chocolate Marbled Tres Leches with Strawberries

Nick (Cyd's boyfriend & one of my best friend's sons) turned 19 on Thursday. He is leaving soon for the Spanish speaking Cleveland Ohio mission, and so requested a tres leches cake. I've never made one before. Once I tried cupcakes and they totally sucked because I didn't think that the cake would ever soak up all the milk, so I just didn't use like half of it, and they were dry. Apparently the sign of a good tres leches is that there should be tons of milk just leaking out of it & pooling around it. Well this was a good tres leches. It makes it impossible to do a cute little pipping border around the base, but it's all good. I found a recipe on that combined Nick's love of chocolate cake & tres leches, with the added bonus of strawberries. It was delish.
