The children will make and decorate Easter biscuits, create a chocolate Malteser slice and produce a delicious homemade lemonade. The best bit is that they will enjoy their own afternoon tea and sample everything they make, before proudly taking the remainder home.

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!
