Macaron Master Classes, morning, afternoon or evening

Really looking forward to moving into our new shop premises in Newbury.  The first Macaron Master Class will be held there on 11th October – and we are still taking bookings for that class.  New dates for October and November are on the website and, to give everyone the chance to come along and learn the delights of macaron baking, I have included weekday morning classes and evening classes  as well as Saturday afternoons.  Do let me know what would suit you best – I can be flexible and build a class around you and your friends.  Learn to bake macarons in time for Christmas – they are certain to give the traditional mince pies and chocolate log a run for their money!

Macaron Towers

Macaron towers are a wonderful addition to the dessert table and a stylish alternative to the celebration cake, with colours and flavours chosen to compliment the theme and scheme of your event or party.  For additional impact, macaron towers can be dressed with flowers or ribbons, or be presented on a traditionally iced cake , to allow for the cake cutting “photo opportunity”. Macaron towers hold from 32 to 235 macarons, depending on the number of tiers, making them suitable for both small and large events. The Real Macaron Company offers up to six flavours and colours per tower ensuring that all taste buds are catered for. Towers can be hired from The Real Macaron Company and filled  with your delicious choice of macarons in-situ at your event venue.

Macaron Flavour of the Month – July

What a glorious summer we are enjoying here in Hampshire! Although today is a little cooler and the garden was even treated to a few refreshing drops of rain this afternoon, the weather has been fantastic for weeks! Barbeques, picnics, summer parties, Pimms, strawberries and cream, relaxed breakfasts in the garden and lazy evenings on the patio watching the sun go down are becoming a way of life.
Summer fruits abound and they make such lovely flavours for macarons. My favourite macaron favour this month – which has been very popular with brides – is raspberry cream. A delicate melange of white chocolate, cream and raspberries generously layered between a pair of pale pink macaron shells is not only delicious but a delight to regard. A rather decadent cocktail of Cassis, a summer fruits and vanilla syrup and plenty of summer fruit topped up with chilled Prosecco is the ideal companion. Set out the croquet lawn and you have the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
