If you have the time and patience, I think Jelly Art is a good hobby to pick up. These 3D Jellies are so pretty to look at especially if you are bored with plain jellies. Well, it was my mom's 87th birthday, so I decided to make my 2nd attempt at these 3D Jelly Arts again.

Ingredients

Number of serving: 3
10g Red Man Konnyaku Jelly Powder

200g Caster Sugar

800 ml Water

150 ml Lychee Syrup

¼ tsp Citric Acid

4 Lychees

Food Colourings

( Coconut Base )

10g Swallow Globe Agar Agar Powder ( White )

14g Red Man Konnyaku Premix Jelly Powder

120g Caster Sugar

500 ml Water

120 ml Lychee Syrup

400 ml Kara Coconut Cream

4 Lychees

Preparation

  • ( Top Part )
    Follow cooking instructions on Konnyaku Jelly Powder to make the top part of jelly.
  • Pour jelly solution into moulds and remove bubbles if any. Refrigerate for about an hour for jelly to set.
  • ( Base )
    Mix agar agar powder, premix and sugar in pot. Place pot on stove and slowly add water and syrup.
  • Turn off heat when boiling, and stir in coconut cream.
  • To keep the agar agar from turning hard, place the pot in a wok with water and keep it simmering until it is ready for next usage.
  • Cut about 8 lychees into bite size piece and set aside. Keep the rest for presentation.
  • ( Flowers )
    Scoop out some coconut mixture into a bowl, and add few drops of red colouring.
  • Step 8 - 3D Jelly Flowers with Lychees ( 水晶荔枝果冻花 )
    Place the bowl in hot water to prevent it from hardening.
    Remove 1 konnyaku jelly from fridge. Make a small dent in the middle and start injecting the red colour to form the flower pattern. When done, put back into fridge and take out the other jelly and do the same.
  • Step 9 - 3D Jelly Flowers with Lychees ( 水晶荔枝果冻花 )
    These are the different blades I used for the two flowers.
  • Step 10 - 3D Jelly Flowers with Lychees ( 水晶荔枝果冻花 )
    When this is finished, prepare another bowl of coconut mixture and add green colour to make the leaves. Do the same for the other jelly.
  • When you are satisfied with your patterns, scoop away excess colourings and use a fork to poke some holes on the jelly or scratch it gently. As mentioned in my old post, this is to prevent the two jellies from separating when cut. You can see how I do it in my previous Mahjong Agar Agar Cake Recipe.
  • Step 12 - 3D Jelly Flowers with Lychees ( 水晶荔枝果冻花 )
    Next, pour a thin layer of coconut mixture just enough to cover the 2 jellies. Refrigerate till set, then throw in the diced lychees. You can now turn off the heat from the stove and pour the rest of the coconut mixture to cover the lychees.
  • Step 13 - 3D Jelly Flowers with Lychees ( 水晶荔枝果冻花 )
    Refrigerate till set and serve your 3D Jelly Art chilled! Optional: I have also added a purple colouring base to the 2nd jelly to make it more colourful.
