Frozen Brazo de Mercedes

Everybody who knew me knows how I love desserts and Brazo de Mercedes is one of my favorite.  It’s already been years since I planned to bake one for us. But never put my hands on it until last week.  While researching for a good recipe, I ran through a Frozen Brazo de Mercedes recipe from Yummy.  Why not do this instead.  Dino likes this better than the classic Brazo de Mercedes.  So the baking begins. 🙂
