[MSP] Pastel de Tres Leches

With Cinco de Mayo coming up soon, this seems like a good time to ask: where do YOU get your tres leches cakes? I'm after a great one.

I started out my search today with a slice at Bread, Coffee and Cake on Wabasha. I think I've mentioned that bakery here before, but this was the first time I've tried one of his cakes, and boy oh boy, maybe I don't need to go any further. It was fantastic. Best I've ever had. Flavorful, not too sweet, with a frosting that reminded me a little of the light boiled frostings my mother used to make (more substantial than just plain whipped cream, but not at all sugary or thick). So good I scraped the remnants off the plate with my finger, and I'm a woman who's known to detest most frostings. Best of all, although the cake was as moist as I would want it to be, there wasn't a pool of milk sitting under a soggy bottom. A great piece of cake.

I've tried Millie's Bakery (also on Wabasha) in the past and it was pretty darn good too, but I like BCC's much better. The one at the El Buritto Market bakery doesn't do it for me.

So although I'm tempted to call it a lucky day and just order from BCC, I thought I'd ask you chowhounds if there's something somewhere else that I just shouldn't miss. I'd prefer to find my celebration cake in St. Paul, but anywhere in the basic metro would be fine with me.
