As dedicated lovers of macarons and martinis, the team at Ohlala Macarons spent many frustrating hours at home trying to recreate these tasty treats. They knew to become true connoisseurs they would need help. So they summoned expert p√Ętissiers and master mixologists and a few sugar and vodka filled weeks later were captains of the kitchen - owners of the secrets of the professionals. 

Never ones to keep the good stuff to themselves, this app is designed to be a complete guide to mastering the art of macaron making, along with learning the secrets of making delicious martinis.

By the end of the course, you will be a confident macaron and martini maker, impressing your family and friends!

An expert review | December 2013

We asked 4-year-old Tom what he thought of Crazy Colours and after 20 minutes of intense concentration, here's what he had to tell us:

Did you like the game? 
 "I liked it!"
What did you like best about the game? 
"I liked the way the colours kept in the lines without you trying and  liked the way the colours changed when you mixed them."
Is there anything you think would make the game better?   
"I would like more colours and I would like a place to draw anything you want instead of just having the characters to colour in."
Thanks Tom!  We will definitely take that into account for future releases and new apps.   
We'd love to hear what your kids think of Crazy Colours. Get in touch and let us know!
