This year's mid autumn festival falls on the 27th September.....I caught the moon cakes fever with the many post of moon cakes by my Facebook's friends.

In the past, I had only made snow skin and jelly moon cakes even though I had this wooden mould for so many years. So, I wanted to try baking traditional moon cakes this time.

Googled and watched some videos on Youtube.  Eventually, I bought a set of mini plastic moulds with 4 designs which are more user friendly.

Assorted flavours mini baked mooncakes, gift for my friend in Sabah.

Made the piggy moon cakes too....and they are super adorable.  My niece then suggested other animals.......hence the "birth" of cat, dog, bunny, mouse and sheep too.

Look what my 12 year old niece made yesterday.....so creative!!!


Last but not least, Shanghai moon cakes.....recipe adapted from my mom's friend who is a dim sum chef.

What will be next? Snow skin, jelly or Teochew spiral yam mooncakes???
