What you'll do

Macarons are incredibly popular, pricey and one of the most difficult pastries to master. When I started, it took months of trial and error with the recipe, preparation, baking and temperatures. Your experience jumps right into pastry insider tips and tricks, do's and don'ts and is limited to 10 participants. This ensures our classes highly instructional and completely hands-on. You begin with learning what a great macaron is and then exactly how to create them from scratch. All the tips and tricks and common pitfalls are discussed. The idea and aim is that you should be able to create beautiful macarons at home! We create macarons from the 4 basic ingredients and discuss how your macaronage (macaron batter) should look when it is ready to be piped. We move on to how to perfectly pipe your macarons and how they should feel when properly cured and ready for the oven. Do not worry if you have never used a piping bag - I will teach you how! We then teach how create the perfect butter cream filling. As well as discussing flavors, others types of fill and correct piping technique. We wrap with different decorative techniques. In all, about 1.5 to 2 hours of solid, professional instruction. You will leave with a full dozen macarons! Now typically, they need to rest but many are eaten right on the spot. Maybe just save one for the next day to see how they are : )

Your hosts

Cheryl is the pastry chef and owner with over 6 years experience as a Macaron Master! I was recently featured on the Cooking Channel for my macarons. It's incredible, but over the last 6 years, I have produced over half a million macarons for weddings, events, showers and holidays. I am known for excellence in quality, flavor and creativity. I have produced macaron unicorns, bulldogs, snowmen, reindeer and massive macarons as big as 8"! I have been recognized as best in Oklahoma by the Travel Channel, Extra Crispy and Buzzfeed. I love teaching and look forward to meeting you and having a unique, fun and totally hands-on experience in the kitchen.
