Lenotre Coffee Macaroons
My little princess is down with flu and a little feverish.. well when i picked her up fm school yesterday she was already a little cranky.. dont know where she got it fm but i am nursing her today.. so far its under control cos we had all her medication prepared bef we went to Europe.. She's still playing n talking n dancing and and and hehe
So that means no school and mama got her much needed sleep.. am feeling all high today.. its friday.. i am fully rested and i plan to do spring cleaning and also bake another round of macs later..
Ahhh talking abt macs.. i hv been baking macs for the past 2 days.. been trying out Lenotre recipe and also comparing it with the recipe that i hv always been using.. two different kinda textures.. while mine i call it 'fragile'.. Lenotre shell is much more stable.. both french method and i love it - this one in particular..
I followed everything that was taught.. all the tips that was given even down to the temp that was recommended.. alhamdulillah.. i managed to get it right and guess what.. not only did I manage to bake it using my mastrad mac sheets.. i also managed to bake it on a new brand of mac sheets that i am planning to bring into my store..
Can u see the tiny coffee grains? love it!
U see I received lots of emails asking me if i am able to find a smaller mac sheet to fit into smaller ovens... well mastrad only brings in a standard size.. while in Europe i found another brand that is smaller in size.. instead of 57 ridge per mac sheets.. this one has 48 ridge per mac sheets.. size is the same as ur typical silpat mat.. mat is slightly thicker than mastrad mac sheets and its brown in colour.. so yeah.. i will most probably try to bring this product in since i hv test run it yesterday..
Coffee macarons with coffee buttercream... remember what i said abt macs and buttercream fillings?? well well.. look whos been putting macs after macs in her mouth yesterday lol... Lenotre coffee buttercream is to die for... their recipe is totally different and i must say it goes really really well with their mac shells... makes it all worth ur time attending their class..
So ok.. Am gonna attempt their chocolate macs and also vanilla macs today.. now .. hmmm ... where did i put my vanilla bean that i got fm Barca...
Hv a great weekend everyone.. am returning this lovely camera back to the owner... hv to go and get myself one soon for its been fun playing around with Timo's gadget! cough cough hahaha
