Hi Christine,

I used a 5.2cm diameter mould so yield about 14 mooncakes.

Thanks! I used the mini mould I got from esjoie and ended up with 11 minis + 8 medium ones. Your mooncakes look so much better than mine. They are so even! =)

I only managed to get the green tea paste from Phoon Huat. Will pandan snowskin be too weird to go with it?

Hi Christine,

Practice make perfect. After you practiced a few more time you will know the tactic and will be perfect. :) You can give it a try. I felt that the strong taste of green tea will cover the pandan taste.

Many thanks. I think I will perhaps do a green tea snowskin to go with the green tea paste. Haha..

Hi,

I chance upon your blog and captivated by your beatiful hotel made like mooncakes. Since this festive season is coming soon, I am thinking to try to make some. May I know what is kao fen (cooked glutinous rice flour) ? Is it can be bought off shelve or we need to cook? If so, how long and under what fire? Secondly for the 50g tapioca flour/Hong Kong flour
(steamed for 10mins, cool and sift twice), do we wrap the floor with Aluminimum foil else will the "steam" gets into the flour? Sorry for my silly questions as I have not tried any mooncakes b4. Thanks

Hi Anonymous,

You can purchase Kao Fen from any baker mart during the festival season.
For tapioca flour/Hong Kong flour just simply spread it onto a plate and steam.
