Exquisite macarons for every occasion

Macaron Master Classes

Macarons are increasingly popular but are renowned for testing the skills of even the most practiced of bakers!

Our fun and informative Macaron Master Classes, suitable for bakers of all levels, combine a demonstration with a practical, hands-on session, with all participants making their own batch of macarons from scratch. We keep the class sizes small to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn the tricks of successful “macaronage” and to gain the confidence to bake delicious macarons.

Our Master Classes, hosted at The Real Macaron Company, Newbury, cost £50 per person, which includes:

  • a detailed demonstration
  • a hands-on baking and creating session
  • macaron tasting
  • light refreshments
  • The Real Macaron Recipe

Participants should bring an apron and a small box or tin for their macarons!

Masterclass set up

 

We aim to be as flexible as possible with our classes, and offer one-to-one or private small group sessions which can be held in The Real Macaron Company, Newbury or in another suitable venue. Demonstrations for larger groups are also possible.

We also arrange special classes for corporate events, hen-do’s and birthday parties, and can include a celebratory glass of Prosecco, an afternoon tea or wine and canapés.

“Bake with Me” Classes (7-12 year olds)

In these classes for younger bakers, the children will help me create, bake and decorate their own selection of delicious macarons, which they can take home in a gift box!

  1. I cannot recommend this class enough! My mum took me last week as a birthday present. I have been trying to master making macarons for some time now but wasn’t having very much luck.

    Gaye was so welcoming and friendly and she made you feel completely at home. She has come up
    with her own recipe for making macarons and made it so simple to follow. She started by demonstrating how to make a batch infront of us all, explaining all the time exactly what she was doing and answering all the questions that we had.

    And then it was our turn! I must say that after her demonstration and with the very easy-to-follow recipe she developed, making macarons was a breeze. We all got to choose a different colour for our batch and I’m pleased to say that every single person in the class managed to produce a perfect batch of macarons! During the day we were treated to tea and some of the beautiful macarons that Gaye had made.

    At the end of the class we went home with a gorgeous goody bag of lovely macarons that we had made, Gaye’s foolproof macaron recipe and I even treated myself to some of the gel colourings that Gaye had on sale (which were very reasonably priced). I have tried the recipe at home – I made raspberry flavoured pink shells with a raspberry and white chocolate filling and they turned out perfectly! I was so pleased.

    I think this class is excellent value for money. I thoroughly enjoyed the day – so much so that I’m thinking of friends to take so I can go again! For the disheartened baker this class was invaluable for providing me with a simple recipe for macarons. But for the beginner, such as my mum, it is a lot of fun and a great way to learn a new skill to impress all your friends with! Thanks Gaye!

  2. Hi Gemma, Thank you so much for your thoughts on our Macaron Master Class. I am delighted that you enjoyed it – and that you have been successful with making macarons at home after the class. Do keep in touch – and certainly bring some friends – we’ll have a macaron-fest!
