· 3 Bake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Let stand 5 minutes. Poke top of hot cake every 1/2 inch with long-tined fork, wiping fork occasionally to reduce sticking.
· 4 In large bowl, stir together sweetened condensed milk, whole milk and whipping cream. Carefully pour evenly over top of cake. Cover; refrigerate about 1 hour or until mixture is absorbed into cake. Frost with frosting. Store in refrigerator. Be sure to seal in cake with frosting leaving no holes or gaps between sides of pan and frosting. This will keep moisture in the cake longer. Once cut be sure to keep covered to hold in moisture.
