Happy Mid Autumn Festival!


 Strawberry Snowskin with White Lotus Paste, Pandan Snowskin with White Lotus Paste and finally Banana Snowskin with Durian Lotus Paste.

Using a new japanese style mould. A break from the usual mooncake moulds pattern. This is banana snowskin with white lotus paste and till date banana snowskin is my favourite! I love the light scent of banana.

I feel it should be a coordinated pairing so I went to get a bottle of Durian essence, already believing that it shld hv a fake scent BUT I was surprise that it actually smell quite “real”. Added a little egg yellow for easy identification, definitely not blue, purple – must be yellow!

Today’s mooncake session is for giveaway and own consumption. I wanted to try making Yam filling with Yam snowskin but the yam paste I got from KCT is flaky and I couldn’t wrap it up, couldn’t figure out what’s wrong too. I love yam – from yam paste or you call them Or Nee to Abacus seed. Shall find out what went wrong and make another attempt again. And I haven got the chance to try out some baked mooncakes (not the traditional type) recipes I spotted in the mooncake book. This couple of weeks is just testing mooncake recipes, fulfilling mooncake orders. And with the festival coming this Tues, I could say this year mooncake making session is finally closed!

Time to turn to my oven and mixer for new bakes!

    Happy belated Mid Autumn Festival! It’s so lovely to see the park in front of my house filled with kids playing with lanterns 🙂

    Hi Ida, the moon is especially round and bright on the 15 🙂 Thanks for the kind words.

    Hi SH, I believe ang ku kueh can but I’m not sure about Jelly cos it’s actually in 2 separate pieces so I the Jelly may seep out?

    Hi Ovenhaven, that remind me of childhood days! Love those lanterns with candles type.
