This recipe uses agar agar and eggs to make a lovely jelly that has a slight custardy texture. The great thing about this recipe is that it does not require careful steaming, it is a surefire success every time.

This is a lovely little sweet to serve at the end of a light lunch. The jellies are layered in small foiled cups to make little treats.

This is a simple jelly snack. I like to make it with coffee, but I suppose it could be made with tea or any other flavoured liquid just the same. Versions with flower flavoured or pandan flavoured waters are common in Thailand as well.

This all-time favourite is worth the effort it takes to make. If you're in a hurry, but still crave that combination of chocolate, cherries and cream, make the cake without the shortcrust pastry base. It will still taste delicious.

This Persian dessert of iridescent milk jelly, delicately perfumed with almond, is set off to perfection by the exotic flavours of the orange flower water syrup and beautiful colours of the fruit salad.

These are a fun dessert to make if you have plenty of time. Children can get involved, too. First you make a yellow mung bean paste, then form it into mini fruits. Then paint the fruit with food coloring and coat it all with agar. These delicacies keep refrigerated for 2-3 days.

I know, it's a lot of work and cleaning up but it's great for a kid's birthday party because it has multiple layers of jelly, each a different flavour and colour. You can make it in a big pan or a glass bowl or in individual bowls.

In this elegant panna cotta (Italian for "cooked cream") a cocoa-flavoured custard is sweetened with chocolate and brown sugar. If you like, you can add a tablespoon of instant coffee powder to the cocoa for a caffè mocha flavour.

Vodka jello shots in champagne. This is a great retro themed drink thats hard to resist. Me and my friends gave this drink its name during a party when we were drinking champagne and eating jelly shots and they somehow got mixed up together. Works best with blue or red jelly but you can choose your colour.
