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.

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.

Jacqueline Pham Oct 2020

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.

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.

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

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 Raspberry Macaron Making Class review by Yolanda  - Sydney

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.

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.
