What better way to enjoy an autumn afternoon than baking a delicious, classic afternoon tea? Learn to bake the perfect buttermilk scone, master the science of buerre noisette as you make delicious honey and orange Madeleines, perfect your piping skills with melt-in-the-mouth Viennese Biscuits, and create a beautifully delicate Earl Grey and lemon macaron.
This four hour class includes professional demos and plenty of hands-on baking as well as lots of helpful tips and baking advice.
And when all is baked, sit down, relax and enjoy a cup of tea whilst sampling your baking delights, with cream, jam and fresh strawberries to accompany the scones. The added bonus is that there will still be plenty to take home and share with friends and family.
The class will be held at Macaron House in Newbury – a perfect space for a relaxing and inspiring class.
Book soon and take advantage of our special promotional price of £75 per person. This really is a baking class not to be missed!

Easter Macaron Baking for Children

Easter is a great time for baking, buying and enjoying sweet treats.  The shops are full of delicious temptations and television cooks inspire us with traditional seasonal recipes and new and exciting alternatives that we just have to try!

Children love to bake, and enjoy sharing the produce of their own handiwork with admiring family members.   During the Easter holidays,  I will be running macaron “Bake with Me ” sessions for 7 – 12 year olds, working with the children to create a selection of seasonally themed and decorated macarons to take home in a pretty Easter gift box.

Macaron “Bake with Me” sessions, with an Easter theme, which cost only £22.50 per child, including macarons and refreshments,  and coffee or tea for accompanying adults,  will take place at The Real Macaron Company, 41a Newtown Road, RG14 7BS, Newbury, on Tuesday 11th, Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th April, starting at 2pm on each day. Spaces are limited so do book early to avoid disappointment.
