- 1Soak agar-agar in ½ cup cold water until water is absorbed and powder is completely wet, about 10 minutes.
- 2Meanwhile, combine ½ cup cold water, 1¾ cup granulated sugar and ¾ cup corn syrup in saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly over medium heat and taking care to prevent boiling over.
- 3Reduce heat slightly and continue cooking and stirring until sugar mixture thickens and forms a strand or ball in cold water. Immediately remove from heat and set aside.

- 8Combine cornstarch and confectioner's sugar in bowl.
- 9Generously sprinkle an 8 inch round baking pan with half of cornstarch mixture.
- 10Pour agar-agar mixture into pan.
- 11Sprinkle top with more cornstarch and sugar to coat well.
