Macarons at 41a Newtown Road, Newbury

I can hardly believe it, but The Real Macaron Company has been in Newbury for four exciting and fun-packed months!  The time has flown by and every day has brought us new ideas, challenges and of course, fantastic customers.

Macarons for everyone and for every occasion

The shop is a hive of activity, open on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays selling our ever-expanding range of delicious French-style macarons, as well as creamy cupcakes and wonderfully gooey brownies, to take home as treats or gifts. We also serve great coffee, a variety of teas’ and steaming hot chocolate, which has been a particular favourite on cold, wet, winter days.  Demand for our macaron master classes  continues to grow and the shop is transformed into a kitchen workshop at least twice a week, accommodating enthusiastic groups of would-be macaronistas!  The keenest among them return frequently for a macaron chat and to pick up macaron-making accessories such as, silicone mats and gel colours.

The Real Macaron Company loves to welcome brides-and-bridegrooms-to-be to sample our macarons and chat about wedding favours, macaron towers and cakes over a relaxed cup of coffee, and with the wedding season fast approaching we are delighted to be involved in a number of local weddings. Towers and dessert selections are also popular for special birthdays, hen parties, Bar Mitzvahs and christenings, and we encourage our customers to come and visit, and taste, before deciding on the perfect macarons for their big event.

We are still busy even when closed, as we bake on the premises, preparing stock for the shop, as well as macarons to order, for both private and corporate customers … and of course the phone and the email are always open for your enquiries and orders.

So if you haven’t managed to visit The Real Macaron Company at 41a Newtown Road, Newbury in the last four months, do come and see us soon, and enjoy all that is a real macaron!

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.
