{Day 30} Raspberry, white chocolate and rosewater jelly

Sadness! Today is the last day of the Royal Selangor Get Your Jelly On challenge. All I can say is that if I had a chance, I would do it all over again. And then some.

It’s been a great pleasure ‘meeting’ all the other contestant through our passion for food and watching their amazing creations. It has also been a bit of a learning curve for me, having gone out of my comfort zone with a number of dishes I’ve made. But most of all it has been a great privilege to support Royal Selangor in their bid to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Welfare Association during Pink October month. I truly hope all of our effort has helped the cause.

While I’m going to dedicate my last jelly to everyone who works tirelessly to help find a cure for this disease, the inspiration for it comes from all the things we love. Combining the flavours of Mr Chipconnoisseur’s favourtire Turkish Delight, the kids’ raspberry macarons, which they refer to as “the colourful cookies” and my ultimate treat, white chocolate. The creaminess of the rosewater and white chocolate jelly works beautifully to balance the tart flavour of fresh raspberries. It is smooth, flavourful and pink!

I hope you have enjoyed the last 30 days of cone-shaped posts as much as I have enjoyed cooking them. I will definitely keep my moulds on display and I’m sure you will see a few more cone-shaped creations in a not too distant future.

Thank you so much for all your support and lovely comments – it’s been an unforgettable month of messy kitchens, desserts for dinner and everything in between, so once again thank you.

Makes 1 cone

Raspberry, white chocolate and rosewater jelly

Raspberry macarons can be bought from gourmet delis – I picked mine up from the Essential Ingredient.

For the raspberry jelly  layer:

  • 1/4 cup apple and raspberry juice, at room temperature
  • 5 fresh raspberries
  • 1 tsp gelatin
  • 1 tbsp boiling water

For the rosewater and white chocolate layer:

  • 1/4 cup of thickened cream
  • 30g white (or milk) chocolate
  • 1 tsp gelatin
  • a drop of red food colouring
  • 1 tsp rosewater essence

To serve:

  • mini raspberry macarons (store-bought)

To make the raspberry jelly layer: dissolve gelatin in hot water. Add to the juice and mix well. Place raspberries in the mould and add jelly. Place the mould in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set.

To make the rosewater and white chocolate layer: place cream, rosewater and food colouring in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over low heat. Remove from heat. Sprinkle over with gelatin and whisk until dissolved. Add chocolate broken up into pieces and stir until melted. Allow to cool at room temperature, whisking occasionally to disrupt ‘skin’ from forming.

Once cooled, pour into the mould over the raspberry jelly layer. Allow to set in the fridge for another 3 hours.

To serve: dip the mould in some hot water for 2 seconds. Turn out the jelly onto your serving plate. Serve with a side of raspberry macarons.

A great grand finale – I applaud all the time & effort you’ve put in to raise breast cancer awareness. Have loved following your conical creations & thanks for so many amazing recipe ideas!!

What's for tea tonight dear? October 30, 2011 at 11:49 am

Well done! I’m amazed at your perseverance and creativity. 30 days?! So much more a marathon than a sprint, and you want to do it all again! I think I’d cave in at the thought of a full week. A very inspiring challenge, and a very inspiring contender.

Angela O October 30, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Oh my gosh! I thought berries and dark choc were amazing! You did it again with this chocolate jelly. Such a great taste sensation I bet! Well done!

Tammy October 30, 2011 at 12:14 pm

Who would have thought to make a rise water and white chocolate jelly, only a genius! Loved every single one of your post during the challenge.

Nic October 30, 2011 at 12:15 pm

I hope you will continue to surprise is with “cones” from time to time! Beautiful jelly!

Mel October 30, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Yum yum. How on earth did you think of adding chocolate to the jelly??? Great job on all your challenge entries.

sara (Belly Rumbles) October 30, 2011 at 1:19 pm

A beautiful finale. Well done on the 30 days and what a challenge it was. There is no way I would have been able to come up with the amazing creative dishes you did.

Eduard October 30, 2011 at 1:42 pm

Great job Martyna, fantastic ideas and top execution at all times.
What is the next challange you are taking on?
Ocean swim or Marathon cross the Sahara?

Wholesome Cook October 30, 2011 at 5:18 pm

LOL! Ocean swim? Yes, will come in handy in burning off a couple of extra kilos gained during the challenge… Sahara marathon? Maybe next year.

Sharn October 30, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Ending on another pink entry seems so fitting! And the transparency to the jelly is wonderful. I’m so pleased I found your site/tweets through this competition. Thanks you for 30 wonderful days, well done for such dedicated work and unique ideas. It’s been a joy 🙂 xx

Your post makes me crave jelly (which does NOT happen), it just looks so delicious! I admire you for sticking with this challenge for so long, I’m sure it was a lot of work. Well done!

Congratulations, Martyna! You did it!!! And with style, I must say. This looks fantastic!

Ally October 31, 2011 at 3:53 am

Beautiful. Just lovely.
I think I would probably pick out the raspberries and save them for last! Maybe squish some up with a little sugar and drizzle that over it, even.

Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide October 31, 2011 at 5:22 am

Raspberries and rosewater equal perfection.

Sissi October 31, 2011 at 8:38 am

What a lovely recipe to end this challenging month. You must be proud of yourself! I cannot even imagine how one manages such an exploit. All the dishes you have presented were amazing and inventive. Congratulations and thank you for the 30 days’ adventure I was very happy to participate in (even though passively).

Three-Cookies October 31, 2011 at 9:38 am

Looks decadent. You can always continue the challenge but you may start getting sick of the mould after a while, or maybe not. There is only one way to find out:) BTW you forgot rosewater in the list of ingredients

Catherine October 31, 2011 at 10:25 am

Wow those are so pretty and looks delicious! Funny thing is, the cone shape reminds me of Madonna’s famous outfit, perfect for breast cancer awareness! 😉

Mez October 31, 2011 at 11:46 am

That looks refreshing and deeeeeeeeeeeelicious!!!

I love the inclusion of fresh raspberries in the jelly. Yum, yum, yum!


Margaret Too November 6, 2011 at 1:00 am
