Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 13x9x2 baking pan w/ nonstick cooking spray. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Bake about 35-40 minutes or until cake is firm to the touch. Remove cake from oven and cool 5 minutes. Meanwhile, combine sweetened condensed milk, milk and whipping cream in a 4-cup measuring cup.
Poke holes all around the warm cake, using a wooden skewer or toothpick. Slowly pour milk mixture evenly over top of holes on cake. Let cake cool 10-15 minutes more to absorb all the liquid. Cover and refrigerate cake in pan at least 1 hour.
When cake is completely cool, spread whipped topping evenly on top. Garnish with fresh fruit. Keep cake covered and refrigerated until ready to serve.
