Macaron flavours for December obviously have to be inspired by Christmas and all the wonderful winter festivities of the coming weeks. As it is such a special month, I have chosen three delicious macaron flavours that echo all that is rich and spicy, warm and decadent, extravagant and sophisticated of Christmas New Year celebrations! Spicy Christmas macarons are made with golden castor sugar infused with mixed spice and are filled with a spicy, orange flavoured buttercream, with glace cherry surprises. Chocolate ginger macarons, with just a touch of ginger to warm the shell are filled with a divine chocolate and ginger ganache. Tiny pieces of stem ginger add to the intrigue at every bite. Finally, a very special Tiramisu macaron, subtly flavoured with coffee and filled with a white chocolate, coffee and almond ganache. Why wait until Christmas?!!
Macaron Towers are a wonderful way to display a festive selection of macarons and make an elegant centre piece for the party table.

Winter certainly seems to have arrived this week. Cold winds, rain, dark evenings, Halloween, Bonfire parties, not to mention Christmas decorations everywhere you look! Definitely time for a rich, decadent, comforting macaron flavour such as ginger and orange, to enjoy with a steaming mug of hot chocolate. The addition of a touch of powdered ginger to the shell creates a deliciously warming macaron which when filled with a dark chocolate ganache flavoured with ginger and fresh orange juice is just what the doctor ordered on a chilly night in November.

The Real Macaron Company’s macaron taster afternoon was held on Saturday 12th October at Intoto Kitchens in Wilmslow. This mouth-watering event was run in conjunction with Cake Club HQ and launched our exciting new “Cake and Bake School” which will host various and varied baking classes and events at Intoto Kitchens over the coming months. Macaron lovers from all over Cheshire sampled a delectable range of macaron flavours washed down with a cool glass of Prosecco, while picking up macaron tips from the live macaron-making demos in the fabulous Neff Demo Kitchen. The atmosphere was relaxed and cheerful – macarons bring happiness!, – and the afternoon was voted a huge success by all involved.
