Gidget, a chat friend of mine introduced me to The Sweetlife by Ange. Her knowing my sweet tooth recommended their Brazo de Mercedes to be the best she ever tasted.
Having searched their site :http://www.thesweetlifebyange.com/index.php?page=sweet-surrender , I have also shared this new found information to a fellow sweet tooth friend of mine, Ghelai who graciously brought me some to taste ....
the brazo de mercedes before opening the package
this one cost less than Php 300.00, just enough for hubby and me
My "tikim" almost took more than 1/4 of the whole piece ...
Layers of soft meringue, custard and french vanilla ice cream on graham craker crust and its a must that it must be frozen or else the ice cream would melt.
My verdict: a nice twist on a classic brazo de mercedes. for a sweet tooth like me, i did enjoyed every bite and finished the whole piece in one sitting (with hubby having to eat 1/4 of it) but i don't think i can finish another piece one after the other. it has some "suya" factor that needs to fade first before you could enjoy another bite after eating a big chunk. but i would definitely come back for more and probably would enjoy other flavors like mango, strawberry and chocolate which you have to order in advance.
