There are more options for getting great macarons now. Many of the big shops will have great macarons, but you can find that the smaller can offer even better quality. There is a new bakery in North London, Macarons by Babette (www.macarons-by-babette.com) that have some macarons that I find better than most I have tried. And they are really picky with how they look too (some shops have macarons that suggest there is no quality control at all!) Try them out!

There is a fantastic company called Ohlala-Macarons which runs macaron and martini making classes. they are so much fun. I went to one for a friend's hen party, but you can also book in for their mixed classes. The salted caramel macarons I learnt to make are so delicious! Check them out ohlala-macarons.com
