This is not the first time I made a blog about this cute and delicious little cupcakes. I just had to create a new one to give you an updated recipe with better pictures and complete step by step guide. Anyway, let's talk about this interesting cake.
Brazo de Mercedez is usually made as a cake roll but it is nice to get a little fancy and make cute little cupcakes. For this one, there's no need to worry about rolling a cake to make a log. But you will need a piping bag, piping tip and sturdy cupcake liners.
Easy to share to family and friends. But if you prefer to make the traditional one, check out my Brazo de Mercedez recipe.
For the Brazo de Mercedes Cupcakes, we have to make the filling first. This is to make sure it has cooled down before piping to the meringue cupcakes. Just combine the egg yolks, condensed milk and vanilla extract, cook in low heat until thick.
Now, prepare your meringue by beating the egg whites, cream of tartar and granulated sugar. Continue beating until a semi-firm peak is achieved (like the photo below).
Pipe the meringue using a star tip. Make sure to leave a hole in the center for the filling later.
Bake at 350 deg F. for 15-18 minutes or until top of meringue turns light to medium brown. Make sure to check before the set time as oven temperature varies.
Pipe the filling into the center of meringue cupcakes.
Then, dust the top with powdered sugar. Isn't it so pretty? See full recipe below.
