Meet me, IT Specialist/Part-time Macaron Baker.
Macaron Love at first sight.
I first came in contact with macaron baking when one of my IT clients needed some branding work for her macaron baking business. When I saw the photos of her macarons I fell in love. That same day, I absorbed all the information I could on Facebook groups and by general advice decided to follow Mimi's recipe, french method
We all know what happened, don't we? Everyone's first batch is a disaster and mine was barely proper for consuming. The next day, with clean tools, correct measurements and proper grinding/sifting I finally achieved a proper macaron batch, with high feet and no hollows.
Some of the rare survivors of my first batch ever.
Since then I've been baking macarons - just for us here at home - and I felt the lack of a quick way to calculate the amount of ingredients
needed for a certain amount of eggs or flour. We all dislike wasting ingredients and discarding a few grams of egg whites was simply not an option. That's when I decided to create maccalc
(macaron calculator) to quickly calculate the ingredients ratios for my favorite macaron recipes.
I hope this calculator helps the macaron baking community as much as it helped me obtain the most perfect macarons.
Feel free to drop me a message on the contact page
