Get your Jelly on – Royal Selangor Pewter

I’ve been contacted by the Royal Selangor Pewter a few weeks ago and they invited me to be one of the 10 inspiring bloggers worldwide to participate in their 2011 ‘Get Your Jelly On!’ competitions. This competition will be conducted throughout the month of October; the competition is a 30-day challenge in which bloggers will devise a new and creative use of the Nick Munro jelly mould daily, accompanied by a blog posting for 30 days detailing the process. Each of us was given 2 of the Jelly Moulds, an Olympus VG-110 digital camera and an apron. You can check out the list of bloggers who participate here .

Royal Selangor is the foremost producer and retailer of fine pewter products globally and is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Every year, Royal Selangor raises funds for the Breast Cancer Welfare Association (BCWA) through the sales of our Nick Munro jelly mould (as seen here), designed by the British designer in support of breast cancer awareness and welfare. Since 2006, Royal Selangor has been working with BWCA and organizing jelly-making sessions particularly during Pink October month to promote awareness of breast cancer and to raise funds through the sale of our jelly mould. However, this year they decided to work with food bloggers across the world, whose creativity and individualism strongly support what the jelly mould represents.

After giving it some thoughts I’ve decided to participate. After all I like making jelly and it will be a great challenge for me to experiment and hopefully come up with something new to share with all of you and to support a great cause at the same time. It is not an easy task as I’ve been cracking my head since on what to make with it so much so until I dreamt about it. So, my dear friends and readers if you have some wonderful ideas on how to use the Jelly mould please please let me know. I need all your support. However, this Jelly Mould is only steamed proof and not oven proof so I can’t bake with it. So do join me in this worthy cause and stop by here each day on the month of October and see what I creates with the mould.


My husband made this little jelly mould holder for me this week and he is working on another display for me. Stay tune to see what he make.

Hi Gert,

Perhaps you could try using Apam mekar resepi for the cone, with different colours for the 'top' mekar part & the 'cone'.. hopefully the apam can mekar full bloom..may look nice ..for pic..perhaps u can put in a longish broad glass..that way your flower tak 'baring' la..just a thot only..

cheers
