We should feel proud of the team behind TheJellyhearts, a story of home bakers turned entrepreneurs and shop owners.
It all started with the ‘Jelly Heart’, the piece of cake dessert with jelly on the top, cheesecake at the bottom, typically complete with a heart-shaped strawberry encapsulated in the middle.
I must have seen and eaten different variants of the Jelly Heart dessert over the years, of different colours, fruits, and recipes, but it was TheJellyHearts who probably started this whole trend.
Back then, husband and wife team Darren and Candie decided to turn their passion around in a much bigger way, and has stayed as the first and only shop that sells the full range of Jelly Hearts.
Candie started out baking as a hobby back in 2007, documented her recipes and creations on her blog like many other home bakers. Her Jelly Hearts became really popular, and the opportunity to set up a business came knocking.
That was just the beginning.
I asked, “What is stopping people from creating their own Jelly Hearts at home with online recipes?”
“Nothing. But through the years, we have perfected our recipe, and we are proud to say that we are the first in Singapore to sell a whole range of Jelly Hearts products.”
A 5-figure sum then was spent investing on a machine to produce the biscuit crust layer, and turned out to be money well-spent for the consistency achieved and effort saved.
6″ round – $29 (6 – 9 PAX), 10″ square – $43 (20 – 25 pax)
This is the most original form, and somehow still my favourite – red strawberry jelly, full cream cheese cake with digestive biscuit bottom.
I like how the piece actually stays in shape without wobbling much and doesn’t create a mess when consuming.
Plus those clean, clear edges must have took quite a while to get it all precise.
10″ square – $47 (20 – 25 pax)
I bought this home and this turned out to be what my mum liked best. Not difficult to understand why. LYCHEES.
The staff at Raffles Place told, “The ladies like these pink coloured ones.” Now, who can resist pretty in pink.
10″ square – $50 (20 – 25 pax)
One of the TheJellyHearts’ newest flavours. The Heavenly Blueberry uses blackcurrent jelly, blueberry fruits, blueberry cream cheese and a chocolate biscuit base. Good for those who prefer something slightly richer with that hint of sweet-sour aftertaste.
6” heart – $42 (6-9 pax)
The Mosaic cake is gorgeous-looking! Somewhat like a reverse Jelly Heart, jellies of different flavours and colours such as the red strawberry, orange, and yellow mangoes are added to the cream cheese layer.
6″ square – S$19 (6 – 9pax)
Kids should enjoy this – crushed Oreo bits in the cream cheese, crunchy oreo base, still with the signature strawberry heart in the middle.
Mini Jelly Hearts 3”, Prices from $6 – $6.80 (pictured in the middle)
Jelly Cups, $2 each and 3 for $6 (pictured around the mini Jelly Heart)
For those who like to try a sampler-set, this is for you. Furthermore, these heart-shaped jelly cups can be further customised with tags and ribbons which would make terrific gifts for corporate events and weddings.
Making the Jelly Heart LOOKS simple, but those who have actually tried it will attest that A LOT of effort is needed, especially in terms of chilling each layer.
For me, other than saving some mess and sweat in the kitchen, TheJellyHearts has indeed grown their range of flavours and offerings, which you can purchase at your convenience online or at their shop spaces at Pasir Ris or One Raffles Place.
Cakes from TheJellyHearts are Halal-Certified, can last up to 3 days if stored properly in the refrigerator. Plus, you can now customise Jelly Heart cakes with wordings cut out from fruits. This rainbow birthday Jelly Heart is just too pretty.
