When I was younger, my mom often made these for my sister and I. If I am not mistaken, she also made them while she was growing up. We always look forward to having these egg jellies for they are not only cute but also delicious.
The combination of cream corn which is sweet along with the agar-agar when chilled make this fun dessert a treat anytime. In Germany, Easter is often celebrated with lots of chocolate. It is difficult to enjoy chocolates especially when I am not a big fan. Thankfully, we have these jellies with cream corn as a substitute. To make it look even more like actual eggs, use soy bean milk instead of water to create the jelly. If you do so, reduce the amount of sugar as soy bean milk is already sweetened.
To create the designs, you can either dye the egg shells or paint them with food colouring. I created these Easter egg decorations using sharpie or marker pens. I am totally in love with the combination of the white and black theme. I googled on the safety of using sharpie on egg shells. It seems this is not a new idea and that it is safe to do so. I noticed that the ink did not seep through the egg shells. To get a clear design, just ensure you take the eggs out of the refrigerator after chilling them and leave them aside for about 10 minutes. Then you can work on the dry surface. You may even draw on the empty egg shells beforehand. Have fun creating whatever design that takes your fancy!

Prepare eggshells by creating a small hole at the top using a knife or chopstick. Wash and dry thoroughly.
In a pot, boil water along with agar-agar powder, sugar and pandan leaves for at least 5 minutes.
Fill each eggshell with some cream corn. Then, pour agar-agar mixture into them.
Let it cool and then, chill them in the refrigerator. Optionally, decorate eggshells. Serve chilled.
