Aspiring Bakers #11: Mango Snowskin Mooncake

My second snowskin mooncake. Used this recipe and trying to make a mango version using just mango juice, and without adding mango essence and colouring. In the end, it turned out quite tasteless and the colour was very faint. There goes the saying 厉害就好,不要假厉害. :)

Recipe adapted from: Amanda's Blog

I am submitting this Mango Snowskin Mooncake to Aspiring Bakers #11: Mid-Autumn Treats (September 2011), hosted by Happy Home Baking.

  9. Such lovely mooncakes! I wish I have the tools and ingredients for making mooncakes in Belgium. What do you do with so many mooncakes? Do u finish them all or give them to relatives and friends? :)

  10. Bee: Thanks! You can use other baking tools instead, like cookie cutters or egg moulds for bento. I have seen people using them to make mooncakes and they are so cute! The mooncakes, all finished by my family. :)
