Master MacaronsGet Edd’s workshop to learn how to make macarons. Passing on his passion and years of experience, you’ll start by learning how to make a perfect meringue. You will then prepare to bake delicious macaron shells, make fillings and apply decorations. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be armed with all the skills you need to get creative and create your own flavours, fillings, colours and decorations.

Macaron ShellsWith the Italian meringue nailed, next, you’ll make your first batch of macaron shells. You’ll learn how to create the magically smooth and moist macaron mixture, the best ways to colour your mixture and how to pipe confidently and accurately.
FillingsModule 3 is all about flavour. Pick up the skill of making a smooth flavourful french buttercream and how to pipe the buttercream to create your enviable batch of macarons.
Flavours and ColoursIn module 4 your macarons get even more stunning. You’ll take the macarons recipe learned so far and get creative with delicious flavours, different coloured shells and masterful decorations.
