Raffles Hotel Mooncakes 2012
Raffles Hotel upholds the celestial Mid-Autumn tradition of mooncake crafting, with its highly anticipated selection of mooncakes, available for sale at the Raffles Hotel Mooncake Shop from now till 30 September 2012.
Every year, chefs from different hotels will come up with creative snow skin flavours. This year, Raffles Hotel has introduced their NEW Snow-Skin Banana Passion Mooncake (冰皮双香月饼, $60/8pcs).
The essence of all the goodness of the banana and passion fruit is encompassed in the smooth chocolate truffle, which is then wrapped in the creamy goodness of the Raffles Hotel signature white lotus paste and tender snow-skin.
