  3. Hi Phay Shing. I bought your macaron book and love it so much! I have a question though, what should I do if the edges of my macarons seem to be browning too fast?

    1. Hi MizReeney,
      Thank you for your support :). Did you use an oven thermometer at all times? Is the fan mode of your oven on? Don't use the fan mode. You may try reducing the oven temperature after the first 10 minutes of baking. An initial higher temperature is necessary to prevent the shells from being hollow but you may reduce the temperature to 130°C between 10-20minutes and to 110°C if the shells are still not done after 20 minutes. I find that no browning happens at 110°C. I hope this helps!

    2. Thanks for the reply! I did use an oven thermometer and it was at around 120C most of the time as far as I could tell. I am thinking also that maybe it's the artificial icing colour. I made light blue elephants and the edges turned brown. I read online that some icing colours arent suited for baking as they end up fading to a brown colour.

    3. Usually it's the natural food colouring that browns more easily. You can try using gel food colouring for blue. Those are pretty vibrant.

    4. Not at the moment although I am open to this option in the future :)

  4. Hi Phay Shing! I also just bought your new book! I just want to clarify a point on the macaronage. Is the batter for macaron art undermined just slightly, as compared to standard Macarons? I currently use the French method. Many thanks!

  5. Hi Phay Shing. I bought your macaron book recently and have my first attempt to make macarons yesterday. The end result is macaron cookies, i.e. instead of the mararon with soft texture it became as hard as cookies (I know I am not talented in this). Do you know what have gone wrong based on your past experience? Could it be I have boiled the sugar solution for too long? Or something else?

    Regards,
    Theresa

    1. Hi Theresa,

      The cookie-like texture is fine actually :). It's just overbaked. This can be easily corrected by aging with filling in the fridge. You may fill it with fillings with higher liquid content such as lemon curd or jams to soften the shells faster. You may notice that I always suggest eating the macarons at least 24 h after filling. This is to allow some time for the shells to mature with the filling. Overbaking slightly is better than underbaking your shells.

      Thank you for your support!

  7. Hi Phay Shing
    Thanks for this very informative site! Would like to check with you- I often have hollow macarons- how do I improve on these?
    How can I store the macarons shells after baking? I have filled them up previously after baking (cooled) but on 2 days later, it appears to be a bit "Wet" though I have stored them in an airtight container in the fridge.
    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    1. Hi Cynthia,
      Hollow shells can be due to a few reasons or a combination of them. Your shells are underbaked, temperature is too low at the first half of baking time, you didn't bang the tray on table after piping the shells, under-folded batter.

      By "wetness" are you referring to the condensation that appears on the shells when you take the macarons out of the fridge? That is normal in hot and humid weather like Singapore. Just leave the macarons out for 10-15 minutes and that wet sheen should disappear.

      I hope this helps :)

  8. Hi, I bought your macaron book as I'm very captivated by the various designs. I tried the icecream macarons. But the surface appeared browning and not smooth. I use Rowenta fan oven at 130 deg for 20 min.

    I also tried the typical round macaron but the feet is lopsided. hope you can help..thanks.

    1. Hi Noraini,
      Thank you for your support :). Is the fan mode on while baking your macarons? I tend to get warp shells (uneven surface at the top), lopsided feet or shells that brown quickly if I leave the fan in the oven on. Please use top and bottom heat only. I hope this helps!

    2. Hi,
      Yes, I was told to use fan mode to avoid getting browning macarons. and so, I bought the Rowenta oven. If I use the top and bottom heat, what temperature setting should I use. I know each oven is different. thanks.

      Delete
    3. Hi Noraini,

      Use the lowest rack too. I usually start with 140°C then lower the temperature to 120°C after the first 11-15 min depending on size of macaron shell and colour of shells. After 20 min if the shells are not dry the temperature should reduce further to 110°C and bake for as long as it is needed to dry the shells completely.

  9. Thanks, Shing Tan. I will try as suggested. :)

  10. Hi Phay,
    I use the French method and my macarons turn out perfect except they brown too quickly which is a problem when I colour them. I use a fan oven at 140 for 14 mins. What can I do to stop browning?

    1. Hi Mahdiyah,
      I don't recommend using the fan mode when baking macarons because that causes browning easily. Use the lowest or second lowest rack when baking. I would suggest preheating oven to 160℃ then lower the temperature to 140℃ once the tray is in the oven but with fan off. If the shells are pastel or white, reduce temperature to 120℃ after the first 10-12 min of baking. Baking time is usually 17-20 min but it depends on the size of your macaron shells. I check to see that the feet appear dry to gauge for doneness. Do note that the temperature and time o suggested is a gauge as each oven is different. You have to play around with your oven settings to find the optimum temperature and time. The rule of thumb for baking macarons is to start at a higher temperature to make sure the structure sets, then reduce temperature towards later part of baking time to prevent browning. Use an oven thermometer at all times too.

  11. Thank you, I'll try that.
    The other question I had is what brand of food colouring do you use?

    1. I use a combination of Wilton and americolour. I use white powder colouring for white.

    Just wanted to let you know that although I couldn't turn the fan function off, I tried the temperature you suggested and they didn't brown. Thank you!!

      Great to know that it works for you! A lot of the baking skills comes from learning how to work with your oven :)
