This is Awesome!!
I has never made macarons before. With this kit I had everything I needed and made perfect macarons on my first try. Love the ease of use and clean up with the silicon pieces.
Not a lot for the price, but it works well and was happily received

I REALLY LOVED THE PACKAGING, SIMPLE AND VERY EYE APPEALING, THE RECIPES WERE EASY TO FOLLOW, AND I LOVE THE SIMPLICITY OF THE SPECIAL BATTER HOLDER AND BAKING SHEET!
LOVER OF MACAROONS
Product is nicely boxed but instruction booklet is small and almost hard to read. The piping "bag" is surprisingly easy to clean.
The product is good for controlling portions. There should probably be one more sheet for all of the batter that a recipe makes. It is sometimes difficult to get under the baked macaroon due to the ridges of the baking sheet. The tool for dispensing the batter is much easier to use than a piping bag and cleaner!

From instructions to taste testing the macarons were a hit. Now I'm experimenting with new flavors!
My mother loves to bake and this is something that I knew she didn't already have but would throughly enjoy. Great for the at home Baker!!!
I received this as Christmas gift from my mother. I have tried to make meringue cookies once before and didn't have much luck. This is my second attempt and this kit has made it much easier. The only thing that I would say against it is that the recipe book doesn't quick indicate what the right texture for the meringue mixture is to tell when it is ready to mix with the flour... I had to look it up. It also is a little confusing about how to exactly apply the dough onto the matte; it says to fill into the smallest circle and it will expand but the first time I made them they came out high and much too small. The second batch was much better when I filled it more evenly inside the larger circle. I think this will just require experimentation. Also, the directions say to bake for 20-25 minutes but I determined about 17-19 minutes was better for my oven or they were much too dry for the correct texture. Again, something that will require experimentation and may be relative to your oven, so keep that in mind. Otherwise, I am very happy with this gift and can't wait to get better at making macarons in the future with this!
