An exciting, new direction for The Real Macaron Company….

Dear Customers,

I am writing to you today to let you know about the significant and exciting changes that are occurring at The Real Macaron Company.

When I first started out on this macaron adventure, my original plan was to teach Master Classes and create bespoke macarons for weddings, corporate events and other celebrations.  Since opening the shop in Newbury, in November 2014, the business has taken off at a great pace and I am absolutely delighted with the results of the last two years.  As a consequence of this success, I now wish to fully focus the business around its key aspects – the Macaron Master Classes, Weddings and Events and smaller, bespoke orders.

From the 1st August 2016 I will be closing the coffee shop, in order to dedicate more time and creative energy to the core business.

The Real Macaron Company is NOT closing down! I am simply moving the business in a new direction!  41a Newtown Road, Newbury will still be the hub of The Real Macaron Company.  I will continue to host Master Classes and ‘Bake with Me’ Classes at the premises.  With more time to devote to this side of the business, I have plans for new and exciting events and activities.

I will also continue to regularly bake in the shop and will be able to take on even more orders – large or small – whether for your weekend treats, or for special celebrations or parties!

Orders can be placed as normal by phone, email or via the website and you will be able to collect from the shop, by arrangement or even benefit from personal delivery. Details will follow.

I hope you will continue to support me in this exciting venture.  If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.  I really want to ensure everything is clear about the changes that are being made, and that you all continue to enjoy Real Macarons!

Kind regards

Gaye

Macaron Flavour of the Month – September

White macarons seem to be popular with customers at the moment – whether for weddings or for corporate displays. Adding coconut to the almond mixture not only produces a whiter macaron shell but also creates the basis for delicious coconut combinations. These certainly rank high on my list of macaron favourites and I have to admit to being particularly excited about this month’s flavour –  coconut and mint chocolate. A delightful, after-dinner treat, savoured with a smooth, rich espresso, these elegant morsels are the perfect finale to a September evening.

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!
