Hi Chumpman,

Double action baking powder contain two leavening actions which give the cake more fluffy and rise higher. I usually use it on steam cake. You can use regular baking powder instead.

Hi Purpledancer,

It is canned cooked corn in creamy style. You can refer to my post under mooncake - Sweet Corn Agar-agar Mooncake. You can buy it from any supermarket.
