  1. Hi Rose!
    I’m trying out this recipe and this is the first time ever I’m trying to make agar-agar! Instead of adding the lemon essence and colouring, I’m going to make a layer of jello instead. Hopefully it turns out good! Thanks for the recipe. And maybe you can add some pics to accompany some of these recipes too!

  5. Hello my name is Marly and i’m currently a student. I have to make a research about fruit cocktail agar-agar for my practical. Found your ingredients and it looks good to me. Nevertheless, could you please specify more in terms of the method? And mind me asking if theres other ingredients i can put instead of lemin essence?
