Gold fish snowskin mooncakes ~ 金鱼冰皮月饼 ~ 2015

I'll round off my mooncake posts for this year with this Gold Fish Snowskin Moocakes.  I love the colours of these goldfish and it was indeed an attraction especially with the kids.  The recipe is the same as with my other snowskin moonies except that I use four different colours to 'create' this Gold fish.   Don't you agree that they are too pretty to be eaten?

An introduction to Shopee

These days, online shopping is getting very popular especially among the younger generation.  It's so easy to just browse thru the websites and pick and choose what you would like to buy at the convenience of your home.  But have you heard of an online shopping mobile application whereby you not only buy what you want and at the same time sell your stuff too.  Yes, it's Shopee!

Lotus with Ferrero Rocher mooncake ~ 2015

When I saw a mooncake post with Ferrero Rocher on My Little Space's blog, last year,  I was very much taken in by Kristy's idea.  The Ferrero Rocher will be a very good 'stand in' for a salted egg yolk and I'm sure that the lotus paste with some nutty chocolate will be a good combination too.

Festivals come and go and the Mid-Autumn Mooncake festival is no exception.  Honestly, I'm running out of ideas what sort of flavours that I want to create for my moonies this year.  I love the design of this mould and since I could get hold of it from a good friend, and with the Oolong tea paste that I had, didn't hesitate to make these snowskin mooncakes with Osmanthus flavour.  The Osmanthus fragrance complements the tea infused lotus paste perfectly and is indeed a good combination.
