I attended the Doughnuts and more! class in July 2015. Everything about the Delightful Tea school is excellent. The website and booking system is intuitive and easy to use. The location and parking are easy to find and convenient. The tutor was professional, knowledgable, but friendly, patient and approachable with it. The course content was exactly as described, fun and appropriate. The pace of the course was just right too. Even the other students were lovely. Also excellent value for money.
We made 6 amazing filled doughnuts. Proper doughnuts. Like the ones your parents used to buy when you were a kid, not the mass produced ones available today. We also made churros, which were little bites of heaven. I cannot recommend the school and this course high enough. I will certainly be returning to do one of the bread making courses. Well done to everyone involved :) From Trust Pilot https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/delightfultea.co.uk/55d1a0090000ff0002ffd8f9
Introduction to Macaron Making
Macarons (sometimes referred to in the UK as macaroons) are notorious for being difficult to master and patissiers and pastry chefs the world over take many years to perfect their skills. Our class is designed to help you try all the core techniques so that you have the confidence to recreate our recipes in your own kitchen – with a little practice you will be a pro!
You will make your own batch of macaron paste and Italian meringue, choose a colour and flavour, before combining, piping and preparing them for baking. You will fill your macarons with a selection of fillings prepared and demonstrated for you, such as a chocolate ganache and a soft fluffy buttercream.

What our clients say about this course
What can I say? An absolutely fantastic class what a hidden gem that was found. Lucky gift brought by my fiancé and I enjoyed every second of it. Macaroons were perfect and tasted fab. Sarah was an excellent teacher and so easy going, helpful and made me feel relaxed. Thanks also to Annie for the support and encouragement. Great place I will be back
I attended a fantastic macaron course last week. All my previous attempts had been disasters but Sarah gave me lots of tips and advice that helped me to produce macarons and a variety of fillings. The true test was making them at home - and the proof was in the pudding as I was able to follow Sarah's tuition to make a successful batch on my own. Thank you - highly recommended.
Had the pleasure to meet the lovely Sarah who fixed a lifelong ambition of mine. "How to make the perfect macaroons". Well my family were extremely impressed with the box I bought home. Can only recommend the baking school. Very professional, hands on and lovely tuition. Can't wait for my next one.
