Hankerie Designer Animal Mooncake

Another year goes by, mid-autumn festival again. This year, I'm making "out of tradition" mooncake whereby no Chinese or tradition pattern on top of the round flat mooncake. What encourages me to try out in creating these new inventions is "why mooncake much be look like this?" Cant they be cute? More kids- friendly? as I am still vividly recalled that I seldom eat mooncake when I was kid, always think that mooncake is not for kids in my opinion due to its appearance. Hence, I started this idea, named them Hankerie's designer snowskin mooncake, with the theme of cutie animals. They are absolutely adorable and fun to see before tasting them.

Likewise making my designer cake, normally I will draw my "blueprint design" on the paper. I applied the same usual practice to sketch the design and make the mooncake into the reality. I always focus on the creativity and originality, and indeed all these creations are fully my copyright including the recipes.

Apart from the unique appearance, the overall taste of the mooncake are equally important especially its fragrance and level of sweetness. Among all the mooncake paste, I am still prefer the white lotus paste even though the preparation of the whole process consuming plenty of time but it is really worth it. In terms of homemade mooncake, the drawback is the shelf life maybe maximum 5-7 days as they are totally free of preservative. No artificial colouring as well. All the colours from this mooncake are from natural food sources.

Another benefit to make own mooncake, you can always making these together with your family or kids. This will be so much fun in the whole process.

I did quite a lot of series mooncake before, in fact I still prefer unbaked mooncake. First is that less sweet and not oily at all. If you're interested on more or other type of mooncakes recipe, kindly refer to my previous posted blog about Mooncake
