Cooking 101; Mastrad Macaroons are French and fabulous

And just like that, Macaroons are the new Cupcakes!

It was about 10 years ago when Sprinkles reinvented the cupcake and made them sexy and new and not just for bake sales and fundraisers anymore. And, now Mastrad (pronounced maa-straad) has reinvented the macaroon… or actually made macaroon-making more accessible to us commoners.


I’m not talking about the macaroons you find at your Bubbi’s Passover dinner… these are the la-dee-dah Frenchie macarons. (They even have one less O!). If you have never tasted one, they are soft and crunchy and melt in your mouth delicious… imagine biting into a little piece of heaven!

If you thought you had to go to a very expensive French bakery with a snobby staff to partake in these yummy treats, you would be wrong, darlings! You can now make them in your own home and you can be the snobby one.


Just a little backstory on Mastrad: It is a French company specializing in unique kitchen tools and accessories and has been revolutionizing the culinary world with a line of products unlike any other since 1994. They are like the Julia Child and Martha Stewart of French culinary tools. Oooh La La, mes petits.


Founded by a team of experienced chefs and designers, every product is created with a dash of function, a spoonful of ergonomics and quality, and a pinch of style – Mastrad’s recipe for success.

So, back to the Macaron Kit, it includes:

100% silicone large baking sheet with 53 ridges

500ml (16.9 fl. oz.) silicone pastry bag

6 piping and decorating nozzles

1 cap and 1 clip to preserve mixture between batches.

A colorful booklet with tips and recipes

This set helps users experience these elegant, light French pastries in their home (without heading to an expensive bakery) during the holiday season. The Mastrad Macaron Kit is definitely a must-have for all self-proclaimed foodies! At just $24.99 it’s a great gift for the junior bakers in your family, the newlyweds or for yourself to get baking for all those holiday parties.

If however, you found making French Macarons too taxing, and honestly, it isn’t the easiest thing in the world for us non-bakers. Mastrad also has a really wonderful cupcake set that shows you how to make perfect cupcakes with kitchen tools, recipes and useful tips and it’s only $19.99
