Mooncake festival is just around the corner , it falls on October 3, and every Chinese household around the world , I am sure will be feasting on these cute little sweet cake now which can cost between RM5 to RM 14 per piece. Homemade ones are slightly cheaper which will cost about RM8 to RM10 depending what the fillings are. There are many types of mooncake, they have the baked ones and the non-baked ones (ping pei) and different varieties of filling. People have become so innovative and creative that they come out with so many tasty and flavorful fillings but we prefer the traditional ones being the baked one with plain lotus paste with duck egg yolks or without the yolks and those with assorted nuts and ham. Will post them up as we eat along :p
Making these mooncakes can be very tedious . So I rather buy them from my friend who is good in making mooncake of different varieties. Homemade ones are less sweet . Since the Piggies love both types , I bought the snowskin ( un-baked ) and baked ones for them to enjoy since they are back for the sem break :)) The chilled Red Dragon Fruit Snowskin ( ping pei ) with the authentic lotus paste with egg yolk filling was the first we tried and it was yummilicious. This costs RM8.80 per piece .
