Established in April 2010, MakMak Macarons is one of Sydney's leading macaron makers. MakMak's macarons were declared Sydney's best, ahead of heavyweights like Adriano Zumbo and Laduree, in a blind tasting by esteemed Sydney chefs Christine Manfield (Universal), Peter Gilmore (Quay) and Ross Lusted (The Bridge Room). All three voted MakMak as their most preferred.

MakMak’s handmade macarons are distinguished by their unique texture and flavour as well as a commitment to sourcing the highest quality ingredients including Callebaut chocolate, Maldon Sea Salt and Bombay Sapphire gin. MakMak uses seasonal fresh fruits and native Australian ingredients including lemon myrtle and strawberry gum.

Carlos, the 'Mak Daddy', of MakMak, can't wait to meet you at one of their next workshops.

The teacher was friendly, clear, confident and competent. Demonstrated easy to follow steps well. After the demonstration, it was easy to build our own macaron by giving us some pre-made ingredients.

Sometimes it was hard to hear the teacher because the room was very noisy. I also wish there had been an option to make vegan macarons.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. There were only 4 of us and plenty of time for listening, watching, asking questions and then making the macarons. My take home batch of macarons were a bit hit with all of the consumers!

Makdaddy is a very good teacher. It was an enjoyable experience and something different to do with my group of friends. The macarons are delicious and the method is fool-proof.

This class was excellent and informative. With there only being four of us, I felt that the teacher was very attentive and gave us room for error when making mistakes. The macarons turned out delicious and I'm really pleased with the results.

Made choc peanut butter macarons per request. Easy going teacher, happy to answer questions. Created a relaxed environment. Taught clearly and provided useful tips.

I really love eating macaron, so I decided to try and learn how to make them. It was a fun and refreshing class for me - Carlos was such an awesome teacher; he explained the recipe step-by-step so I was able to easily understand instantly. Thanks to Carlos that I ended up making a good batch of macarons and was really glad I joined this class. It was a really good value for money - would love to join another macaron making class next time!

I thoroughly enjoyed the class and the teacher/owner was very knowledgeable and passionate about his product. Although, the store/working space was a bit cosy with the amount of people that attended on the day. The 2 hour class also felt rushed as there was a lot to get through (who knew macarons were so technical? :P). But importantly, the finished products that we took home were delicious!

Carlos was nice and kept to his material. The venue was ok and they had air conditioning, the materials provided were organized and arranged well. The class was quite expensive and although the macarons were good, no additional attention was given to the kids. The class should note that it is not suitable for children under 10 and to pay $100 per child is very expensive for a bit of a rush 2 hour class. We learnt some little tricks and hope that our macarons are going to turn out. Overall an enjoyable time.

Lisa Veale Oct 2018

I thoroughly enjoyed the class and was impressed at the wealth of knowledge our teacher had.
I definetly recommend this class!

Fiona Bozic Oct 2018

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.

William Hendarta Sep 2018

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.

Meng Du Jun 2018

Very interesting class! People are very nice and considerate. And macarons taste good!

It’s always a pleasure to attend a workshop taught by true professionals. Carlos is obviously a competent chef, with a real passion for making macarons. His class was fun and knowledgeable. We also got to put in good practical skills and the end results was perfect!
