There are two desserts that have been on my to do list for the longest time, sansrival and silvanas. But because I find the sheer process of making them quite intimidating, I’ve been delaying the task. I have, however, found inspiration over the holidays when we received just the taste of heaven in a little box, silvanas from the House of Silvanas…
The House of Silvanas’ silvanas are a delicious layer of buttercream sandwiched between two cashew-meringue wafers and coated with cookie crumbs. It was love at first bite for my daughter who practically wanted the contents of the box all to herself.
Silvanas now come in a variety of flavors: Original (Regular Buttercream), Ube, Buko-Pandan, Mango, Mocha, Strawberry, and Chocolate. I have yet to taste the other flavors but I’m thinking I may just be a little too partial to the original.
This is just the inspiration I need to finally cross out silvanas from my to-do list. I hope to make this my first project for 2011, the first treats out of my oven. *wink*
Thank you, cousin “R” for the yummy treats! *muah*
