Mastrad...my New Love!

If you had read my post yesterday, I was eagerly waiting for my Mastrad sheets! Yup,I got them yesterday, and due to the nick of time that I have been imposed, I didn't think that I would give the sheets a try last night...but not!

I cleaned them....yeah there's a special instruction to clean them before first time using....and did my first batch of macarons using Mastrad silicon sheets...woo hoo! They were awesome!....let's see this....
Pecan macarons (using home made roasted and ground pecans) shells I baked this morning using Mastrad! It was super fast, started making the meringue at 5, and finished baking at 6.30.....and all my dishes cleaned and kids up getting ready to go to school!
The piped batter...ahhhh, finally Igot my macarons all in the same size!
...tadaaaaa...the baked shells, absolute beauty, to my eyes lah...and look at the bottom, so smooth! Pecan is my hubs favourite....all will be filled with Maple Italian Meringue buttercream, yums!

For this I can't thank Rima enough for bringing in the sheets....it is so much faster to make beautiful macarons! All were made using the French meringue method, which makes life much simpler and easier!
...and last night I had a special guest who came to collect her Mastrad sheets.Tina is my macarons punching bag...we will text each other in the wee hours in the morning whilst making macarons, me here and she in Ampang! Tina still had a couple of weeks before she completed her race in the Milkadeal deal, haha..been there done that.....it was all worth the experience! and you know what, I only met Tina through her blog, similar like Wiz and Rima! To me Rima is the epitome of kek lapis and all complicated cakes, Wiz the epitome of sugarpaste art and Tina is the epitome of macarons and delicious bakes!...Moi...the epitome of don't worry be happy and create what I call authentic macarons...really they are usually not uniform in colour and size...I told you, am nota mathematician...am a lawyer, I deal with facts, precision is not my tool, haha!

...anyway, the demure Tina brought along my belated birthday gifts, both nicely presented(that's why I only opened them this morning!)...you! Two of them! I was in awe when I open the box this morning to find this rustic looking ramekins and what made went ahhhh when I open the other parcel...
It's a Martha Stewart latest book on pies and tarts....oh pucuk dicita ulam mendatang....tqtqtq Tina....you should see what I got her...a kitchen termometer and a book by Jill Colonna, Mad About Macarons....both were not wrapped..haha so me, so impromptu...I am a sanguine you see! 

Oh...what a beautiful day macarons can make to you, yes thank God all macarons making this week thus far had been very smooth, ....2 more batches to do tonight and the fillings and they will all be rady for tomorrow!

Check out Rima's blog and store if you are ineterested to purchase the Mastrad sheets...they Rima and sheets are God sent! Have a beautiful albeit very hazy, day peeps!xox

Hi, was browsing for reviews on mastrad macaron sheet. I previously bought one from a lady who currently is residing in the UK. U can browse her facebook/instagram UK Four Seasons Sales :) so far I am a satisfied owner of the sheet. Very easy to clean & macs came out perfect everytime :)
