Sydney Food Bloggers Christmas Picnic 2012


Photo from Simon (

It was that time of year again when infamous bloggers Grab Your Fork and Chocolatesuze organised one of the biggest Sydney Food Bloggers Picnic. The picnic is literally composed of food bloogers from the Sydney region, who all bring a dish or a drink and have the chance to meet fellow bloggers. It was great to meet new bloggers, and put faces to already known blogs. 

A highlight would have to be the EVIL Secret Santa, allowing the opportunity to steal someone else's gift. As soon as you steal, you are in for a ride. The Secret Santa definitely allowed us to put faces to bloggers and to see who the evil ones are!

The array of food

This time, I was supposed to make gelatin free marshmallows, but that was a fail result of goo, so as a last resort I had to quickly make some chocolate cheesecake brownie.

Jasmie Tea Creme Brulee tarts:

Assorted sandwiches

Red Velvet mini-cakes, and dates wrapped in prosciutto

Thai chicken in crispy wonton:

Lovely themed cake for the #sydfbxmas2012:

A cute pig cake from hello happy, purchased by:

The pool of gifts!

Trying to steal a gift, and Simon ( hoping someone steals his cup

After I tried to steal a gummy bear jelly mould, I decided to pick a new gift which was a macaron timer (which in the end also got stolen from me, and in the end, I ended up with a pizza stone =D)

Chocolate suze won the jelly bear mould, before it was taken from her, and she got another gift she wanted.

Good food, good times!

The KK section is always fun - it's interesting to see which gifts are the most sought-after too! So glad you could come - I managed a small piece of your cheesecake brownie. Deliciously rich!

Hope the pizza stone serves you well.

I did enjoy the macaron timer! I couldn't decide between the timer, pizza stone and jelly bear mould! That macaron time was so cute though!

Again, thank you and chocolatesuze for organising such a great event! More enjoyable every time!

Hahaha, in the end I didn't get the mould either, so karma got me back. I am very excited to use it.

thanhalang 29 November 2012 at 00:09
