Kahlua snow skin mooncake ~ 2018 ~ 咖啡冰皮月饼


These snow skin mooncakes stay fresh and soft even after being kept chilled for a few days.  There is a great variety of mooncakes to choose from these days and for the snow skin mooncakes, one can create different flavours for the snow skin and this time I chose to add in Kahlua for a coffee flavour.
