I have no plans to do baked one this year as I’ve orders to fulfill so I don’t think I have time for it. Things took a change when I realise the little nephew prefer baked ones than snowskin (he only eat the snowskin mooncake if he prepare them!). I was prepared to buy the traditional ones but after trying a few reputable ones, I didn’t really like them. It’s definitely not that they are no good but probably didn’t suit my taste palate. They have this very authentic taste in the skin, to the extend of a little bitter?
K volunteer to pass me a little of everything so I don’t have to buy a fresh new set of ingredients for a few mooncakes. I did a check on the mooncake syrup and realise they could still be use so she kindly pass me some alkaline water. I steal some time in between orders, they are wonderful to mould! So I end up with only 11 pcs – 4 pcs white lotus paste and 6 pandan lotus paste. Before we could wait for the skin to be “matured”, we already ate 2! They are very small in fact, 50g. So I think I shall go and get some more done later!
