March News & Events

Along with the amazing press write-ups that we've received on Femina, Prestige, Harper's Bazaar, Grazia, Martha Stewart Living, Good Housekeeping, and Her World (and others I may have missed), we had quite a stretch of events as well this month. The team is tired but will do it all again in a heartbeat. Contact us for any questions or requests:

March 11, Friday
Martha Stewart Living High-Tea

* Martha Stewart Living Indonesia has been so kind as to contract us for their high-tea events. Their emphasis on lifestyle and homey feel is a great compliment to what Bittersweet believes in.

March 16, Wednesday
Pacific Place Food Demonstration: Serving the Perfect Dessert in Less than 30 mins

* Pacific Place has been so kind as to feature me in their All About Food Month for 2 demo days. I got to know so many wonderful people especially mothers who fell in love with our cakes and came for the following food demo. On this day, I demonstrated how to make 2 of our best-seller cakes. Our Carrot Cake and Fruit Tart. On average, each cake took approximately 30 mins.

March 18, Friday
Pacific Place Food Demonstration: Cookies & Tea Pairing

* What I emphasized during this demonstration is to learn how to pair the pastry or cookies you're eating, with the tea you're drinking. It's all about complimenting your taste buds. Along with that, I shared with the viewers what has got to be the easiest cookie recipe EVER. And they taste so good, please don't blame me if u get addicted. For those who missed the recipe, I'll share it with you right now:

All you need is:
1 box of Ritz Crackers
1 box of chocolate compound (dark or semisweet is fine)

1. Simmer the chocolate compound in a silver bowl over a pan filled with water
2. Remove the bowl of chocolate from the heat
3. Dip your Ritz Crackers until fully coated with chocolate
4. Leave it to dry ( In the fridge for 5 minutes or at room temperature for 15 minutes)
5. DONE!

March 20, Sunday
Potato Head Sunday Food Market

* This is our second time joining in the fun. We sold our best sellers and also our macaroons in which were sold out within a few hours!

March 27, Sunday 
Plaza Indonesia Food Tasting Fiesta

* In celebration of Plaza Indonesia's 21st Anniversary, we joined in the Food Tasting Fiesta that they organized for 100 random participants. We provided our best sellers; brownies, carrot cake, red velvet and oreo cupcakes, and all of it literally was wiped out of the table within 30 minutes!

Jour du Macaron 2011

The weather was sunny and breezy, the kids were piping macaron fillings, the adults were enjoying our delectable macaron. More chitter and chatter droning away while sipping coffee au lait with macarons. T'was the perfect Sunday...

Our 60 macaron were snapped out so quickly in the first half session of the Sunday Food Market in Potato Head, that we hate to see some of our customers frowning in disappointment - don't worry, folks, we are sure to provide more next time!

Flavours available on the day includes strawberry, green tea, oreos, chocolate and durian (to those with daring taste buds)

Keep updated with small simple events like this from Bittersweet Corner.
Meanwhile, stay tune and have a good Monday morning!

Oreo cupcakes exclusively from us

All About March

It is already Mid-March and things are getting busier for us once and again. This month we see ourselves featured in various magazines such as Femina, Prestige, Good Housekeeping, Grazia, Her World and many more. The staff is working in a frenetic pace to keep the orders flowing for all of you guys! :)

Before I start rambling on to other unimportant things, Bittersweet will be involved in fun events coming up this and next week. We are delighted to announce 2 inaugural Demo classes in Pacific Place's All About Food Event.

  • Baking Demo: 16th March, 12pm @ Ground Floor: "How to serve the perfect dessert in 30 minutes"
  • Pairing Demo: 18th March, 12pm @ Ground Floor: " Create your perfect tea and cookie combo"

On top of two exciting sessions above, we have once again collaborated with Potato Head in its Sunday Food Market's Jour Du Macaron (Macaron Day), to support the renowned pastry chef Pierre Hermé and the prestigious Association Relais Desserts in their effort to money and awareness for various charities (for more information, refer to Jour Du Macaron official website here) . Some of our available macaroon goodies flavour are Vanilla, Strawberry, Green Tea, Chocolate, Lemon, Snickers© and Oreo. This year's Macaron Day falls on the 20th March, do drop by and say hi!
