Material to succeed with macarons!

French macaron recipe is quite easy. Most of the time, people who don’t succeed with macarons don’t have the suitable material.

So before you try to make French macarons, be sure to have all the proper tools.

silicon spatula

Silicon Spatula 

It is THE tool to “macaronner” (It means to mix in a specific way the macaron, go to the macaron recipe to have explanations.)


A blender

To make the shells of your macarons smooth, the mixture of almond flour / powdered sugar must be very fine. So you’ll need to blend them before using.

If you use our macaron baking mixes, you don’t need to mix your dry ingredients.
