Your agar agar mooncake certainly look good! I always think that the process of making them is too tedious :)

Hi Elyn,

Some may said that it easy but I felt that it need a bit of patient. You have to make sure that the agar agar powder dissolved,if not it will not set (the powder is so fine so is difficult to see). And the agar agar must be semi-set before pouring the next layer. Sometime I will miss it so the agar agar can't stick together.:(

Why don't you give it a try and you can master another skill.

rgds,
