I attended the Marvelous Macarons Class, and it was incredible! While French Macarons are very temperamental and require precise measurements, this class will show you how easy it can be to make this very impressive dessert. I was previously intimidated, but that trepidation has gone by the wayside.
Class description: “Still the hottest class we offer! Learn how to whip up a meringue and mixing batter to deliver crisp shells with perfectly risen feet. Plus, create fillings like dark chocolate ganache, curd and buttercream.” You get to take your delicious treats home with you as well.
Step 1) Pick your station, and a partner!
Step 2) Whip up that meringue, baby.
Step 3) Check out those peaks!
Step 4) Mix your dry into your wet, adjust color as needed
Step 5) Pipe your cookies
Step 6) Voila, like MAGIC!
Step 7) FILLING - With the freshest ingredients - I opted for raspberry lemon swiss buttercream
Step 8) Assemble, decorate, and bon appétit
Pastry Chef, Trish, was absolutely fantastic. She first gave a live demo, and was available throughout the process for questions and assistance. Trish is knowledgeable and passionate about baking. She provided a packet, inclusive of tips, the history of the French Macaron, as well as the recipe.
I would not hesitate to return for another class! Go check out The Master’s Baker! What are you waiting for!?
