All three voted MakMak as their most preferred.

I attended the Mak Mak workshop with my 14 year old daughter. We both had a lot of fun, and Carlos was an excellent teacher. Very generous sharing his advice and experience. Would definitely recommend.

Carlos Heng was awesome, he knew exactly what he was doing with Macaroons. The recipe and method were easy enough to follow for an average baker (just need practise). I would definitely give it a go again at home.

Great course. Class not too big, and very knowledgeable teacher. Highly recommend. Logical, easy to learn approach with precise recipe that is easily reproducible at home with normal kitchen equipment. Lots of vital tips that recipes just don’t include. Made perfect macarons first time - see photo! Not cheap, and maybe including a Teflon baking sheet would be a nice touch, but I plan to recoup my costs by making lots of macarons for home and friends!

Carlos was a great instructor, he is very experienced in the area of macaron making, he shared a lot tips on what to avoid and what could go wrong with the macaron making process with his past teaching experience. He was able to answer every single questions from the students with lots of detailed explanations. Very impressive indeed! He is also funny and friendly which made the class very enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Over all it was nice to know all the steps and the hard work it take to make a single macaron. But personally I was expecting more I thought that we were going to learn and do every thing ourselves but almost every thing was pre prepared and we ended up just mixing and piping. Also I do not recommend it for kids under 12 years old.

Well organised workshop Carlos offered expert advice and lots of tips on how to create perfect macarons. Everybody was impressed with their batch, a great class for macaron lovers!

Makmak Macaron Making Class review by Yolanda


Just wondering how young is too young to attend this class. Knowing how tricky macarons are to make? I have a 6 year old boy & 7.5yr old girl

Both ages are fine if accompanied by an adult. As long as they are interested in baking, they should be able to follow the class.

How many macarons would you get to take away in a private class?

Both ages are fine if accompanied by an adult. As long as they are interested in baking, they should be able to follow the class.

For a private class, can you provide aprons? And can we keep our drinks in your fridge?

Yes to both questions!

More about this class

Gaining popularity in recent years, macarons have established themselves as a favourite dessert. Beyond the traditional French macaron, there are plenty of different shapes and flavours. They are diverse, sweet and challenging to perfect. Macarons are tricky to get right.

With their pretty colours, simple shape and small size, macarons are the perfect dessert for parties. They are commonly used at bridal showers, baby showers, bachelorette parties, tea parties and other upscale occasions. Whether you choose one colour or several, they are not only an aesthetically pleasing snack, but tasty too. Macarons are light and airy, making them a great choice when guests want something small to pick at. Plus, there is sure to be a flavour that fits into any colour scheme.

Aspiring bakers often try their hand at baking macarons because they are difficult to make. They may look simple, but don’t let the appearance fool you. The method seems straightforward but the technique must be perfect, otherwise, you won’t get the desired appearance or consistency. For this reason, macarons are often included on competitive baking TV shows. If contestants can perfect them, that’s a good indication of their skill level.
