Frozen Mango Brazo de Mercedes from Aggy's
I've had frozen brazo de mercedes before but they are usually delivered to our office during production meetings and shoots and I have no idea where they came from.
While Hubby and I was driving around BF, we saw that Aggy's was selling them. Aggy's has been in BF like, forever. I remember my mom used to buy birthday cakes there when my brother was still young. Their cakes are usually so colorful and so well decorated.
Anyway, Hubby and I decided to buy a small Frozen Mango Brazo de Mercedes to try at home. Frozen Brazo de Mercedes are typically made with a graham sugar crust, topped with a cream filling (made with egg yolks and milk), a layer of ice cream and topped with a pillowy meringue.
This one looks good enough. Hubby wasn't a fan though. He didn't like the crust because it was too sweet. I thought the crust was a bit salty (?). I'm not sure what's going on with Hubby and me since we are having two different experiences with the same cake.
