For the Brazo de Mercedes Cupcakes, we have to make the filling first. This is to make sure it has cooled down before piping onto the meringue cupcakes. Just combine the egg yolks, condensed milk and vanilla extract, cook over 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 and a new VIDEO below. Enjoy!
