We are Jose and Ana Paredes. By day an engineer and architect by night macaron bakers. We enjoy taking a French classic and exploring with a variety of flavors bring a twist to traditional flavors. After a year of experimenting with flavors and many trial and errors, Mad Macs Dallas was realized in October 2015. It was with the encouragement and support from family and friends that we started our small macaron business. It has always been our goal to introduce new comers to macarons and push the boundaries of traditional flavors within these French classics. 

We are proud parents of two amazing pups. Tex, the small white one, and Bruno, the brindle one. These two bring us the greatest joy in our everyday lives.
