Works for me with the current version of PDF::Table (0.9.6)  -  but not with an older version (0.9.3).

Also, note that $pdf->corefont("Helvetica", -encoding => "utf8") creates and embeds a font instance every time you make that call.  I.e., an optmization would be to create the font object just once

my $helvetica = $pdf->corefont("Helvetica", -encoding => "utf8");

and then just pass the same reference to the individual cells

... $cell_props->[$j]->[$k] = { font => $helvetica, font_size => 15, background_color => '#FFCA00', # font_color => '#fD4D4D', # justify => "left", }; ...

This cuts down the PDF size for the sample code from 290k to 9k.
