Mid Autumn Festival 2017 – 20 Mooncakes That Even Chang Er Will Love
It’s almost Mid-Autumn Festival again, the 15th day of the eight month on the lunar calendar (which falls on October 4 this year) when the moon is full. The traditional way to celebrate this festival is by indulging in mooncakes. Every year, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to the mooncake flavours available. Whether you go for the classic baked mooncakes or have a more adventurous taste buds to try the new snow skin flavours, here are some of the best mooncake recommendations for your consideration (according to alphabetical order).
Celebrating the yearly mid-autumn tradition of joyous reunions, local artisan bakery Baker’s Well presents an array of mooncakes, from baked classics to novelty mini snow skin masterpieces, to please all palates.
Indulge in the adoring mini snow skin mooncakes ($66) in tempting colours that represents 6 different flavours – Signature Champagne Truffle, Yuzu Truffle, Earl Grey Lavender (NEW!), Rum & Raisin, Matcha Truffle and Salted Black Sesame Truffle. The exquisitely handcrafted Champagne Truffle is delicately swathed in creamy white lotus paste and enfolded in tender snow-skin. The new Earl Grey Lavender mooncake is enough to intrigue without overwhelming the senses.
Baker’s Well has also assembled a collection of traditional baked skin mooncakes with less sugar. We like the popular Pure White Lotus with Double Egg Yolk and Roasted Melon Seeds ($41.60/2pcs, $68/4pcs). The salty yolk and nutty aroma of melon seeds balances out the subtly sweet notes of the lotus, culminating in a well-rounded flavour. There are other classics such as Pure White Lotus with Macadamia Nuts ($39.60/2pcs, $66/4pcs), Sugar Free Pure White Lotus with Roasted Melon Seeds ($42/2pcs, $70/4pcs) and Traditional Mixed Nuts ($43.60/2pcs, $72/4pcs) to satisfy those who truly recognize the authentic taste.

Themed “The Cow Jumped Over the Moon-cake”, this series celebrates the whimsical side of the brand, and each mooncake is inspired by “Hey Diddle Diddle”, the same nursery rhyme that sparked the idea of Cat & the Fiddle.

The strawberry flavour and chocolate flavour contain alcohol. The former boasts a sweet and tart combination of cream cheese and lotus paste cradling a centre of white chocolate martini ganache with refreshing mint leaves. The latter, on the other hand, is rich and luscious. The heart of dark chocolate ganache is delightfully spiked with orange vodka.
Durian lovers, it’s a great opportunity to treat yourselves to the King of the Moon ($68.80 / 8 pieces).
