In this class you will learn to bake perfect, buttery shortbread, try your hand at  choux pastry  with raspberry eclairs, get to grips with iced lemon fondants and  master the all important “macaronage” for a coconut, dark chocolate and lime macaron.
This four hour class includes professional demos and plenty of hands-on baking as well as lots of helpful tips and baking advice.
When all is baked, we invite you to sit down, relax and enjoy a cup of tea whilst sampling your baked delights. 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.
Places are limited so do book soon. At only £75 per person, this really is a baking class not to be missed!

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.
