OMG your mooncakes are beautiful! The pigs are so cute!
Those piggies were gorgeous, you are very talented with your hands, it was lovely stumbling upon your blog this evening.
Thank you for visiting 🙂
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 🙂
Wow, these are all so gorgeous!!
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.
Oh my.. those piggies are so adorable..肥肥圆圆的,还有小ribbon 呢~ 哎哟哟! 你真的太棒了~
Michelle: So nice…daddy can made octopus mantou…must share… 🙂
Lululu: I am sure most home-bakers know how to make mooncakes. Some ingredients shop offer free lesson and also mooncakes demo at the mall.
