Frequently Asked Questions

We Love Answering Your Questions!

General

A boutique bakery that puts a modern London twist on an Italian and French patisserie classic.

All our macarons (except those that are vegan) contain nuts, eggs, and dairy and are suitable for gluten free, vegetarian and halal diets.

We have a selection of vegan macarons available, just look out for our ‘vegan’ labels on our shop collection page. The Avocado and “Can’t believe they are not” collection are vegan macarons.

All of our macarons are hand made in London with the finest ingredients and stay fresh for up to one week.

We recommend storing your macarons in a refrigerator so they stay fresh for longer.

We don’t advise freezing your macarons after purchase, although if you learnt to make them yourselves at one of our workshops they can be frozen after baking.

We are always developing exciting new flavours. Follow our instagram to see what we are creating next. If you have a specific flavour you would like then we would be happy to discuss a bespoke commission. Did you know we once even made bacon macarons!?

We are currently online only baking and handcrafting our delicious macarons in the heart of Bloomsbury in London. However, we would love to welcome you to an Oh La La! Macaron boutique store in the future so keep your eyes peeled.

We are very eco-conscious here at Oh La La! – all components of our packaging are recyclable. Our boxes are made from recycled materials and can be fully recycled throughout the UK, our stickers are recyclable and compostable and our plastic trays are recyclable.

Every element of our packaging is designed to reduce its carbon footprint and we are making efforts towards becoming a zero plastic business in the near future.

About our Macaron & Martini Making Workshops

At Oh La La! we aren’t a normal cooking class - our focus is on fun! We guarantee you will have a brilliant time or your money back.  We don’t use any fancy equipment so all our recipes can be re-created at home.

An Oh La La! afternoon includes: interactive macaron and martini making demonstrations, unlimited macarons and fruit martinis throughout the class, a box of hand crafted (by you) macarons to take home and Oh La La!’s exclusive recipe cards.

As you arrive you will be greeted with a welcome cocktail and invited to indulge on a never-ending stack of macarons. We challenge you to finish them before the end of the workshop!

The secrets of baking notoriously tricky macarons will be unlocked as you are taken on an edible journey. There is no fancy equipment and everything can be recreated in your own home.

You are then invited to go behind the bar and get hands on with our charming barmen. They will shake their stuff with you and your friends, creating bespoke cocktails that can be named by you. We'll write down the recipe on an Oh La La! card for you to keep.

There are a gorgeous abundance of pretty pre-made macaron shells and a range of delicious fillings on hand - meaning you get the chance to create your own hand crafted, personalised macarons to take home.

The class runs for approximately 2.25 hrs.

We offer a sliding scale on costs depending on how many people attend the class, so round up all your friends! Contact us for more details.

Typically, our classes run between 8 – 25 people per class.  The average class has approximately 10 - 15 people attending. However we can be flexible as to how many people we take each class.

All information about our up and coming classes can be found here. Alternatively if you are organising a large group to attend one of our classes, such as a hen party or a corporate team building event, then send us an email on bookings@ohlalamacarons.com with your desired date and we will advise when we have space available for your event.

Yes – because we are a small company we can be very flexible. We are happy to come to you anywhere in central London.

Our classes cater cocktails to your tastes using a range of fresh fruits and flavoured liquors. We concentrate mainly on vodka based martinis with fruity infusions.

We happily offer alcohol free classes, these can be mocktail classes, or exclusively macaron classes.

Yes! We are a small company, so all our macarons are homemade. Macarons are naturally gluten and wheat free. In the past we have also made lactose free and vegan macarons.
