My kids and I loved this class. We walked away with 18 beautiful and delicious macaroons and definitely feel like I can replicate the recipe at home. Our only discipline that was that we didn't get to make the shells that we actually used but I understand why that is given the time constraint.

The class was good value and the host was lovely but note that you don’t actually make the macaron mixture yourself because of the time it takes. The host demonstrates how to make it and gives all the tips and tricks. You do get to pipe some macarons, make the fillings and put them together.

This was such a neat experience! L’Appartement was a clean and chic area where the noise from the mall didn’t intrude. I love that we were told and shown each step of the macaron making process and were able to receive the final product by the end of our session. Our guide was skilled and friendly and made sure that all ages (from grandparent to toddler) were involved with the process.
