Agar agar moonies

Finally I made these mooncakes . It's quite a long process (tho' not tedious) to make these as you need time to set the agar agar part by part. 1st you start with the egg yolk portion. I let it sit in the fridge for 2 nites as I can't find the mojo to continue with it. But being a weekends today, and I was idling at home, there was absolutely no excuses not to complete the whole process.

I bought the egg yolk jelly mold 2 years back, and never got to actually use it coz I was too lazy. It was still in its original shrink-wrap when I took it out 3 days ago! LOLz.
Thanks to Elyn for trying out the recipe, modifying it and finally posting it online. She mentioned that the final mooncakes were rather soft, so I upped the agar agar portion just a tiny little bit. Still, I found that maybe more can be added to achieve that crunchiness I love in agar agar.

Besides the pandan flavour, I made them in yam flavour too.The mini white ones were left over agar agar cutout from the white "fillings" and I added an egg yolk in each of them too.
