Agar agar or jelly is a refreshing dessert to end a perfect meal. This time I did a coffee and coconut flavor but you can add any flavor or color you like. I know it takes a bit of time to do it layer by layer but the end result is beautiful. Who can resist a dessert like that ;) You can read more about agar-agar at Wikipedia

2. For the coffee layer mix agar-agar powder with water bring to the boil over medium heat in a saucepan. Stir continuously until all the agar-agar dissolves, then add sugar Continue boiling until the sugar, add mixed coffee, stir well, and then turn the heat to the lowest.
3. For the coconut cream layer mix water and agar-agar powder together, bring to the boil over medium heat. Boil until the agar-agar dissolves, and then add coconut milk, sugar and salt together. Stir regularly to prevent the coconut cream separating. Being to slow boil until the mixture dissolve completely, turn down the heat to the lowest.
4. Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoonful of the coffee mixture into each mold, leave to set. Scratch the surface lightly with a fork and then spoon the same amount of the coconut mixture over and leave to set. Continue with this process until each mold is full. Leave to completely cool before remove from the mold.
