Hi there! Ramadan month is starting. It’s been hot lately… I hope you take good care of yourself and have a good month ahead!

By the way, I will be conducting Raya Special Macaron Class in June. This is Caramel Factory’s signature macarons, using Italian meringue method. We will be making 4 kinds of popular flavours in the class; Japanese Green Tea, Raspberry, Chooclate and Vanilla macarons.

The class will be held hands-on and I will be teaching how to make macarons in details. Macaron making can be quite tricky but if you practice a few times, I guarantee you can make nice macarons successfully even at home!

You can bring these macarons to your seasonal gatherings!

Green Tea Dacquoise & Fondant Chocolat au Maccha*

13 Mar

DSC_0023

Our March Basic class menu is Green Tea Dacquoise & Fondant Chocolat au Maccha (newly added)!

Dacquoise is a meringue and almond base cake with butter cream inside, just like macaron, but the cake is softer and also chewy. The cake crust is easy to make but we need to handle with care to keep the texture! We will sandwich green tea butter cream which consists with green tea powder + anglaise sauce + italian meringue + butter. It’s a very nice butter cream that melts in your mouth. This can be used as macaron fillings, too!

DSC_0229

In this class we will also make Fondant Chocolat au Maccha and eat during the tasting session. It’s a Fondant Chocolat with melting maccha ganache inside. This cake is simple to make too!

I was making macarons whole day today! I think I’ve made more than 250pcs… in requested turquoise color, oh yes, just like my shop wall color! It’s for someone’s wedding event this week. I am very happy that my macarons are chosen for these special occasions. ^^ Thank you!

IMG_1233

Sometimes my macarons turn into those masterpiece – macaron tower! I supply custom made macarons (colors and flavors are up to customers) and the finishing will be made by someone else. 

macaron tower

We also supply our macarons to cafes (around Shah Alam) every week, and that makes my days Very busy apart from preparing for classes and conducting classes…

And because I make so many macarons, sometimes I bring back the extras home and have them with a nice cup of coffee! yum yum…
