Pin It Now!

To be inspired to the surroundings is actually making our creativity has more versatile and its great to conjure the thing into your passion. Makes everyone you love feel happy and indulging the treat.
A simple thing sometimes has spiked you and came up with some incredible idea.

The idea of batik brownie I have made today is actually inspired by the Ripcurl shop that has the latest design of batik to their beachwear and surf-wear, it looks great from the display ├ętalage I’ve seen while I walked my little man. I was as impressed at the same time very proud of traditional batik as representation of Indonesia has become worldwide.



I merge the recipe here and here and then I have marry them together became the one I want it to be. I did the swirl movement technique just resemble the batik maker artist--see *wink and I just did a lots of curl pattern to it but anyway you don’t need to worry so much about it, just move smoothly and elegantly, the most important thing is to just relax your movement, heart and soul
I use butter knife to make it easy as at least similarly of batik pattern
