Time flies it is mid-autumn festival again. This year is special as dd got third prize for lantern competition and I tried making moon cake.

Google and printed lots of recipe. Bought the plastic moon cake mold and snow skin mix from Gim Hin Hee.  

Bought one more plastic mold from Phoon Huat.

This is the snow skin moon cake recipe as per the instruction written on the packet:

2. Divide dough according to the size of your mold.

3. Divide  paste to small portions and roll into round balls.

4. Wrap paste with snow skin and press into moon cake mould.

I followed the moon cake pastry recipe from auntyyochana’s blog and used the paste from KCT. It is yummy and my kids love it.
