We celebrated Cinco de Mayo a few days early and since I am an old Southern woman I had to throw a little hillbilly in there too.  I made a Pig Lickin' Cake (story goes the cake is so good that even if you dropped it on a pig you'd lick the pig too) and Tres Leche Cake.  I have never made the Tres Leche before and from the looks of the scraped pan and the bickering coming from the kitchen, they were both a hit!  They both use boxed cake mix as the base so it's easy peasy
Pig Lickin'
1 box (18 ounce) yellow cake mix
4 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 can (15 ounce) mandarin oranges with juice
1 carton (12 ounce) Cool Whip
1 box (3 ounce) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 can (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
In a large bowl mix together the cake mix, eggs, oil and butter. Add the mandarin oranges and juice, and beat well by hand. Pour the batter into greased 9X13 inch cake pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.

In a large bowl combine the Cool Whip and instant pudding mix. Add the drained pineapple. Refrigerate until the cake is cooled. Spread on top of the cake.

Store the cake in the refrigerator

Tres Leches:
yellow cake mix (mixed with ingredients on package)
1 tsp Mexican vanilla
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
Milk soak:
1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 container whipped topping, thawed
1 tsp cinnamon
Prepare the cake mix according to the directions, adding the vanilla and cinnamon.
Place in a greased 9x13 baking dish.
Mix the 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top of the cake batter.
Bake the cake for the longest time listed, so that the edges of the cake get crispy. It was 33 minutes on my box.
Let the cake cook completely.  Mix the 3 milks together and keep in the fridge til ready to pour.
With a bamboo skewer, poke holes all over the cake about an inch apart.
Slowly pour the tres leches (3 milks) into the holes in the cake.
Refrigerate the cake until the liquid is absorbed into the cake.
Mix in the teaspoon of cinnamon in with the thawed whipped topping.
Frost the cake with the whipped topping.
Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top.
Serve and enjoy.
Store cake in refrigerator.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
