Brownies n cookies - Cute Christmas

Christmas day is already in the corner! Something fun to do during Christmas is sharing our joy by giving Christmas presents to those who we care.
I believe the brownies cake shaped as a tree, covered with green icing fondant and some Christmas ornaments made also from fondant on it plus "cute doggy" cookies, can become a cute Christmas present ;)
Ready to deliver :)
I hope the ones who received this Christmas present will feel the joy and enjoy it.

Merry Christmas 2010 & Happy Holidays, Everyone!

JCF Food Blogger's Dinner

Jakarta Culinary Festival (JCF) held a special event called Food Blogger's Dinner - Eat, Drink and Write at Pop Up Restaurant & Bar on 30 November 2010. It's a collaboration between Ismaya Group and Goorme.com (an Indonesian food portal).
The JCF Food Blogger's Dinner started with a talk show about Writing presented by Ivan Sielegar (Goorme.com), Erza S.T (Food Writer) and Photography Tips and Tricks by Himawan Sutanto (Foodtography).
Then after the talk show, Chef Hugo Adrian demonstrated the step by step how to prepare California roll.
As soon as the demonstration ended, all the food bloggers headed to the dine area. As a starter, we were offered for the complimentary welcome drink such as Erdigner Beer or Ketel One Lychee Martini. Then, the complimentary wine - G7 Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon or G7 Shiraz or G7 Chardonnay, to accompany our dinner.

While waiting the dinner to be served, I sneaked to take a glance about the activities in the kitchen ;)
