These are the products I recommend for making the best macarons
This is the mixer I use to make macarons and the fillings for the macarons. You can get it here
This is a cheaper option but not ideal for making macarons. It could still work in a pinch, if you don’t know if you want to spend the money on the stand mixer. Just make sure you get a real high speed one like this one here
This is essential for making the shells. You have to weigh the ingredients to make sure you’re using the correct amount. Get the scale here
Make sure you get something sturdy with a rubber handle. I use this brand here
Just get an oven thermometer, any oven thermometer. I like this one
These are important to me. When I first started making macarons, I couldn’t get the macarons to have even feet, these baking sheets fixed that. If you don’t get these, make sure the sheets you use don’t have a raised edge around all the sides. These are my favorite. I like 14in x 16in
These are my favorite. They’re sturdy and last awhile because you can definitely wash and reuse them a few times. I use the 18in bags here
I use No. 12 Round. Get a few, they tend to disappear. Available here
Important to get a strong one. It can break while mixing the macaron batter. These are my favorite.
Get something bigger to make the sifting go faster. Like this one
These are crucial for a strong, flat macaron shell. I use the 16.5in x 11in size. You can use parchment paper, but the bottom of the shells might be a little wavy. Just don’t use wax paper or foil. Here’s the brand I use. These are also really great for any other cookies you make.
I’ve used Bob’s Red Mill, Blue Diamond, Honeyville, and Alldrin Bros. Alldrin Bros is my favorite, but the minimum you can buy is 25lbs. I recommend getting that brand and just keeping it in the freezer or sharing it. If you don’t want to make a 25lb almond flour commitment, Honeyville is my second favorite.
Food Coloring and Paint
Gel Food Coloring
I’ve used and really like both these brands:
Liquid Food Coloring
I also like to use the Kroger brand food coloring or pretty much whatever liquid food coloring is at the store.
Edible Paint (I only use these to paint on the top of macarons – I don’t like using them in the shells)
Food Pens and Markers
Fine Tip Neon Markers: Get them here
Bold Tip Primary Color Markers: Get them here
Extra Fine Tip Markers: Get them here
Fine Tip Assorted Color Markers: Get them here
Fine Tip Black Markers: Get them here
I can’t find the paint brushes I use, but get something really tiny. These would work.
