SOS Tres Leche from Costo

VosFan | Oct 29, 201706:13 PM     5

I am having guests tomorrow for lunch. I ran out of time, so sent hubs in search of a dessert. He came home with a Tres Leche caramel cake from Costco. I had this once at a party, and did not like it at all. It is two layers of sponge cake with some sort of cream in the middle, and caramel on top. This is an SOS for an idea to improve this thing.
I am used to the Tres Leche in Puerto Rico from a fantastic little bakery on my route to the airport. It is so milky and creamy, you could almost eat it with a spoon, and it has great flavor. (Some tres leche cakes just taste like a can of condensed milk has been poured over them.) Does anyone have any ideas for pumping up the flavor of this thing? I am getting up at 6 AM, to go get my bread at the bakery, so I could also run in the store to pick up something to make this a better offering. Any ideas?
