Hi! Like like the others I found the mat to be too big to fit on a baking tray, although it does fit in my oven.

I have also found the French meringue recipe to be confusing. One is told to add egg whites to the dry ingredients and then later to 'Add the sifted POWDERS to the meringue and gently pour them…

I enjoy baking - and a challenge - so will make no harsh comments until I have mastered the macaroons.

    A light, French confection, these colourful almond-based treats have knocked cupcakes off the patisserie top spot! They’re very trendy at the moment, which makes bought ones really expensive but, after a good testing, we’re happy to say that they’re surprisingly easy to make at home with this kit. To ensure neat rounds, the silicone baking sheet has ridges to keep your piped mixture in place, and there are dozens of recipes to try... As a gift for bakers, we think ‘c’est magnifique’!

    Set includes : an easy-clean silicone piping bag and stand for simple filling, 6 piping nozzles, 43 x 33cm ridged silicone baking sheet, a piping bag cap and cleaning brush and an 84-page recipe book.

    "This is tricky!!!"

    28 November 2011

    Hi! Like like the others I found the mat to be too big to fit on a baking tray, although it does fit in my oven. I have also found the French meringue recipe to be confusing. One is told to add egg whites to the dry ingredients and then later to 'Add the sifted POWDERS to the meringue and gently pour them into the mixture.' At this stage should the icing sugar/almond mix still be a powder or is it already mixed with the non-beaten egg whites? I enjoy baking - and a challenge - so will make no harsh comments until I have mastered the macaroons.

    Thanks for your review. They buyer who tested this has passed on the following info: Sift the icing sugar and the almond powder together then add 2 of the egg whites from the batch which you have prepared the day before. You then beat the remaining egg whites into fluffy clouds and then add the almond/icing sugar/2 egg white mixture to the clouds. We hope this helps.

    "Great set but baking sheet too big for my oven!!"
    Rachel

    25 October 2011

    I've wanted to succeed at macaroons for a while and the silicone baking sheet looked a great help! The piping bag kit and book are great, cant fault them but most annoying thing was the baking sheet was way too big to fit on any of my baking trays, & when I tested the size by putting it directly onto oven shelf there was no way it would fit into my oven! (big 4 door) I couldn't shut the door! In the end I decided to cut it in half which was a difficult decision as I didn't want to spend £35 on something and then cut it up but worked a treat, had two half's which I used with 2 trays. Success!

    "Complicated & Slightly Disappointing"
    Sophie Denman

    25 February 2013

    Macarons are some of my favourite French treats and I saw the macaron gift set and knew I had to have it. There are several flaws however. The silicon mat is too big for my oven, even putting it on a grill tray, it is simply too long in length and I do not want to have to cut in in half. The recipe for French style macarons does not explain very well the recipe, quite hard to follow. The piping bag and stand are good, but very messy to refil. Despite the flaws, I was glad to finally have a go at making the treats, but it was a more stressful than enjoyable process.
