I'm sure that many of you talented bloggers are very busy making mooncakes at home, for the Mooncake Festival which is only 10 days away. Today, I'm going to show you how to make piggy mooncakes by hand. It is very easy to shape a cute fat piggy by only using a round 1/8 teaspoon, a skewer, a toothpick and a small plastic sheet. Just remember not to press the piggy too hard when making as you don't want the piggy to have too many of your fingerprints on its body. You don't want a slim or out of shape piggy, right?
Now please watch the tutorial below and if you've made the piggy at home, I would love to hear from you. Have fun!
