A baker creates stunning 3D cakes made out of JELLY – and they’re almost too pretty to eat.
Siew Heng Boon, 35, has been creating incredible 3D jelly cakes – which include fish ‘swimming’ floating through them – for the past two years.
The cakes that she creates include floral patterns, wildlife and even personalised requests.
However, due to the jelly nature of the cakes, they appear to look as though items are ‘floating’ around inside the cake.
Siew, from Sydney, Australia, said: “I first saw this in Malaysia two years ago. Intrigued by it, I decided to attend a course run by a famous 3D jelly art teacher in 2016.
“I wanted to perfect the art and experimented on taste, natural colouring and design.
“As I posted my experiments on social media, I started getting requests from people wanting to order my jelly cakes.
“The feedbacks that I received were wonderful.
“It can take up to 4 hours to create a jelly cake depending on complexity.
“A clear canvas is made using gelatine or jelly powder made from seaweed.
“To create designs like flower, leaves and animals, hot liquid coloured jelly is injected into the canvas through specialised tools.
“The entire process of creating the artwork is actually done upside down. Once the design is completed, a base is poured into the mould to seal the clear canvas.
“I only get to see the final result when I flip the jelly over.”
