My first homemade mooncakes gifts to my mum, mother-in-law and of course, some for myself :)
Fresh out from the oven:
I used a wooden mould for this "White Lotus mooncake". The knocking was quite fun: left, right, top and bottom. The most difficult part was dislodging! Look at the sides... need more practice to perfect it! :(
This plastic plunger mould was a breeze to use. Press and it came out very nicely. This one with "Green Tea lotus" fillings.
This one with salted egg yolk. My kids didn't like it! So did I! :D My husband felt that the yolk was a bit dry and not fragrant enough! (may be I didn't soak with sesame oil long enough or I over-baked...)
My snowskin "Green Tea Lotus" mooncakes also as gifts. Quite pretty right? My elder boy loves this very much!
Looks pretty but need lots of practice to perfect the skin... some thin, some thick...!
My mum was very pleased with the baked mooncake. I was pleasantly surprised when she gave a thumb-up for my bakes! Needless to say, I was really HAPPY!
Thank you Aunty Yochana and Amanda for the wonderful recipes! All the mooncakes were very well-received! :)
