This Flavored Frozen Brazo is Available in Ube, Avocado, Strawberry, and More

A fun twist on the classic dessert!

Brazo de mercedes is a classic Filipino dessert composed of a rolled meringue cake filled with rich yellow custard and sprinkled with powdered sugar. It also has a frozen variation, which has the same sweetness and fluffy texture, but with ice cream in the center, making it perfect for summertime. If you love the traditional dessert, you'll want to try IG-based bakeshop Maria Makes's fun twist on frozen brazo: It's available flavors like ube, avocado, strawberry, cookies and cream, caramel macchiato, and vanilla!

Maria Makes' frozen brazo is composed of meringue cake and custard like the OG cake but with a crumbly graham crust on the bottom and a flavored ice cream in the middle. Take your pick between classic vanilla and other flavors like ube (a.k.a. Metro Manila's current obsession), avocado if you like a light flavor profile, caramel machiatto for coffee lovers, or cookies and cream for some extra crunch. They're a great dessert option for your family on a regular week, but also festive enough for celebrating occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, or graduations at home.
