  30. Mamatkamal: Thank you so much for your compliment.
    Hong Kong flour is a highly bleached all-purpose soft wheat flour. This flour is also used in Bao (Chinese white bun with meat in it)and I also use it to bake cake. I'm not sure whether you can get this Hong Kong flour in UK.
    Even Muslim in Singapore also make mooncake with red bean paste...surprise isn't it?..haha...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow, the mooncakes made by you just like one of the famous brand out there. The one sells out there are way too expensive and too sweet. I wish to make some too but I don't even have the mould for mooncakes. I love your handmade piggy mooncakes!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi TINTIN,
    Thank you for you sweet comment.
    Actually you can order mooncake moulds on line. It is made of plastic and much easier to handle than the wooden one.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you for your answer Anncoo, maybe I should order this flour online hehe,

    I see so many food bloggers around making their own mooncake, my hands are so itchy....I really hope I can give it a try but too bad I have no time and strength (I am very tired after work and even during weekend) to shop for the ingredients. Hope next year I can make some.

  53. these are really pretty! may i know where did you buy your moulds from? are they made of plastic or wood? thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hello Yinyin:
    The traditional mooncake is used by wooden mould. Bought this long time ago from Sunlik. I don't think they still carry stock because now people can buy lighter mould like plastic mould with interchangeable plate. You can check at shopnbake.com. The sale of plastic mooncake mould still available~closing date is 7th Oct.
    The piggies is handmade by me.
    Thanks for dropping by :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. thanks for your reply. ya, sunlik dun carry stock for wooden moulds anymore cos i went there b4 the festival but could not find any wooden moulds.

  56. OMG your mooncakes are beautiful! The pigs are so cute!

  57. Those piggies were gorgeous, you are very talented with your hands, it was lovely stumbling upon your blog this evening.

  58. For the sugar syrup, can you advise how to make/where did you buy it?

    I saw several sources of baked mooncake recipes using sugar syrup, golden syrup, mooncake syrup. Not sure if they are the same thing. So thought of asking you, since you have made mooncake before and can shed some light on this.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Homegirl, I never use golden syrup for my mooncake. Sugar syrup and mooncake syrup are the same, that is caramel sugar syrup and usually available during Mooncake festival and I always get it at Sunlik.

  60. Ann,

    Do you have a video showing step by step on how to make that piglet..

    It's soooooooooooo cute!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Rosamundwo,
    Thank you for your compliment. I think I will post the step by step next year because once the Mooncake Festival is over, I am lazy to do anything with mooncake ;))
    You can go to my new post of mooncake (2010) this year, the photos are better.
    Thank you very much for visiting.
