Under the tuition of Ewa Feix the participants will learn how to make macarons using the French meringue method. The participants will prepare the macaron recipe from scratch as well as a raspberry and buttercream macaron filling. In this course, the participants will practice piping the macaron shells and how to make colorful shells. As a bonus, there is also a small introduction to working with fondant, where the participants make fondant decorations to accent their macarons.
Each participant gets a box full of freshly made macaron to take home to friends and family.
This class is offered as a 2 hour long course or a 4 hour long course. The longer class includes fondant decorations and a break which includes freshly baked homemade pizza and a fruit platter and the shorter one does not include any fondant decorations and only warm and cold beverages. Both class options include being greeted with a glass of sparkling wine/mocktail.
We are looking forward to hear from you! If you are interested in having your Event with us you can send your request here.

The minimum amount of participants to run a private class is 4 participants.
It depends how fully booked we are. Ideally you should book a minimum of 4-5 months in advance of your event date. Our course schedule is available online (link) so you can see which dates are already taken well in advance. A nice idea if you see that your event date is already booked out on a Saturday or Sunday, try to request a Friday evening slot.
Almost all of our private events take place at our location in Waldems which is great because you don’t have to do the dishes when you are done!
We do also offer courses on location whether directly at your home or in a party location. We bring all the ingredients and materials in large transport boxes, do a complete set up and then we bake together. Please note that there are additional costs for travel and set up time to consider when booking outside of the Waldems location.
Events usually take place on Saturdays and Sundays however a great under-booked but just as fun time slot is Friday evenings!
There are two main options for course durations. There is the shorter course which is 2,5 hours long and includes small amounts of baking and is more focused on decoration and putting desserts together. The other option is a 4-hour course. Courses which run 4 hours have a break with complimentary finger food. This usually includes pizza or sandwiches or salads as well as a fruit platter. During the 4 hours, the participants are involved in the whole baking process. The shorter option is designed as a quick and easy part of a bigger itinerary and the longer option is for the real baking enthusiast who wants to spend as much time baking as possible.

The minimum age for participants is 14 years old. The classes are fast paced and in larger group settings. Usually it is nice for the 14 year old to come with a friend or adult so they have someone to connect with during the class as other participants often also come with partners. For 13 and 12 year olds, a parent is required.
Participants can bring a notepad and a pen for taking notes. Participants can bring their own apron to the event. For baking events, it is always a nice touch when the party organizer provides matching aprons for everyone. Boxes are provided for the freshly baked goodies however you can also bring a large flat bottomed bag for easier transport.
No, all courses are designed for first time bakers to enjoy. There is always a mixture of foundational baking basics and more advanced techniques on Das Cupcake courses.
