Royal Selangor 30-day ‘Get Your Jelly On’ challenge

Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Competition

Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Competition

October is a month for breast cancer awareness and support.

To support this great cause, we will be posting a daily recipe on our blog using the new Royal Selangor pewter jelly mould designed by British designer Nick Munro, in aid of breast cancer.

We are honoured to have been invited by Royal Selangor to be part of this 30-day ‘Get Your Jelly on’ challenge where ten bloggers from around the world compete for an all-expense paid 4-day trip for two to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia worth $5,000. The winner will also be required to hold a cooking and media photography event at the Royal Selangor centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Being the youngest of the ten blogs, we are a little daunted, to say the least. The profiles of the other bloggers and the popularity of their beautiful blog posts and photographs are intimidating. The prospect of competing against these talented bloggers will mean using all of our creative skills in the kitchen. We hope to use this opportunity to experiment and share new recipes with our readers and support a great cause at the same time.

Please join us on this worthy journey to support women affected by breast cancer. All proceeds from the sale of these beautiful pewter jelly moulds will go towards improving the quality of life for women affected by this disease through the Breast Cancer Welfare Association.

Royal Selangor has given each participant two beautiful pewter moulds with recipe cards from celebrity chefs, an apron and an Olympus VG-110 camera to kick start the competition. The winner of the competition will be judged based on creativity of the recipes using the pewter jelly mould.

Some of the terms and conditions include committing to the 30-day challenge by publishing a recipe involving the mould everyday in the month of October 2011.

You can support and help raise the awareness of breast cancer by the following ways:

  • Share our recipes with family and friends on Facebook or Twitter.
  • Like chopinandmysaucepan on Facebook.
  • Follow chopinandmysaucepan on Twitter.
  • Suggest to us any recipe, jelly or otherwise that you may like us to cook using the mould. Recipes do not necessarily need to incorporate gelatin and participants are encouraged to be as creative as possible. We need all the help we can get and would welcome any creative ideas and recipes from our readers.
  • Purchase a jelly mould from Royal Selangor. Remember, all sales proceeds will go towards improving the lives of women affected by breast cancer.

    How very cool! Good luck in the competition – you may be the youngest blog but you were obviously chosen for a reason. Looking forward to seeing where you go with it!

    As far as a suggestion, how about using different applications of fruit to create a scene or pattern, or “painting on” mountains in the style of Chinese or Japanese paintings before filling the mold with gelatin? I’ve also seen some really cool techniques for creating fully edible gelatin flowers in a mold (

      Hi Sarah

      Thanks for the tip and link. Such a beautiful creation but not sure if we can replicate something so intricate!

  2. I like the strategically placed cones in the 2nd to last photo 😉

    Like all of us, you were selected by the Royal Selangor team because they thought your blog was worthy. We are all at first intimidated after looking at the “competition” but as I reminded Terri (A Daily Obsession), the competition is actually only ourselves. We can’t know what the other bloggers are doing, so we can only do the best that we can, for 30 days straight!

    30 days’ straight blogging. Daunting isn’t the right word for that. Maybe more like insanity 😛

    Happy jelly making!

      Hi Nate,

      Didn’t even realise the “strategically placed cones”!! It was totally unintentional.

      Agree to happy jellying everyone!

  3. babe_kl says:

  4. Best of luck with the competition! I think everyone will be competing their hearts out for it! :)

  5. Congratulations on being selected! I can’t wait to see what kind of jelly creations you come up with. Good luck!

  6. Sissi says:

    Congratulations and good luck in the competition! I don’t really make jellies… I don’t think I would come up with a winning idea for you, alas :-(

  7. Such a wonderful cause and I love that little jelly mould! Good luck in the competition, I am sure you will do wonderfully!!

  8. JasmyneTea says:

  10. Dolly says:

    always good to see food mixed with charitable events…

    i love going to charity resturant events.. always feel so good after eating :)

  11. Congrats on being a part of such a worthy cause! I’m sure you’ll do well to come up with 30 awesome recipes. Do you think a no-bake cheesecake could work with the jelly mould? (I made a mango-flavoured cheesecake recently, if that helps at all.) You may need to improvise a little with the biscuit base though…

    • Chopinand says:

      Hi Expat Gourmand

      Will definitely give this one some thought. Thanks for the suggestion as it is a little different from just jelly and that’s what we are looking for!

  12. Joanne says:

  23. Such a great cause! Good luck in the comp :) Im sure you will do tres fab! Cant wait to see what you guys come up with. My suggestion would be some kind of cone shaped savoury pie lol not sure if it would work/stand up properly but if it did, it’d be pretty cool

    • Chopinand says:

      Hi Nic

      Thanks for the suggestion. The problem is the mould is not oven proof so we need to keep that in mind.

  24. Good luck and all for a great cause!

  25. What a cute idea, those moulds are adorable. I’m celebrating this great cause next month by supporting the Mushrooms Go Pink campaign.

  26. Hotly Spiced says:

    Best wishes for the competition. You sure will be busy in October! Excellent cause and great prize.

  27. What an honour to be selected, good for you!
    Pannacotta, parfaits, savory jelly like brawn but yummy, cheesecake, frozen desserts, layered jelly, moulded rice/ biriyani,coat the inside with chocolate… so many choices! Good luck!

  28. What an interesting jelly mould shapes!! Definitely need to put your creative juice together for this competition. Best of luck to you!

  29. Diana says:

  32. anncoo says:

    Good luck in the competition! ???

  33. Kimby says:

    Thirty one posts in thirty one days featuring cone-shaped food … what a challenge! But nothing like the challenge of beating breast cancer. Several of my friends are breast cancer survivors and they’ve since embraced life head on, one day at a time. I hope that thought inspires you and I look forward to checking in on your creative ideas! Congratulations on being selected — you’ll do wonderfully well!

  34. babe_kl says:

    Good luck in the challenge 😉

  35. heidi says:

    What about an ice cream confection- shaped in the cone and then covered with meringue and placed on top of a cake- a baked Alaska type of thing.
    Good luck!
    I’m off to like you on facebook!

  36. Great you’re supporting this! I’m looking forward to lots of creative recipes and cross my thumbs for you!

    I love all your recipes so far. Keep up the good work and good luck! :)
