  8. Your cake is so pretty. I want to try it out but how do i get the pandan water? Do i have to boil the pandan leaves with water first, then take out the pandan leaves and then add the other ingredients? Also how do you make the hearts at the top? They are so pretty!

    1. Hi, thanks..just blend the 10-15 pandan leaf with 200ml water , squeeze out the juice , keep the juice in a container keep in fridge, after 2 - 3days, you can see a layer of pandan paste sink at the bottom.
      The heart shape jelly actually is my heart shape ice cube tray.
