Caught the Mooncake fever

All I can say is that I am so glad I started late on making mooncakes this year, thanks to my ever energized tots. This is my second attempt in a week, and I love making this snowskin or pingpei mooncakes. It's addictive, and I really enjoy this process. I used all four of my wooden molds tonight, and I have a feeling that I'll be collecting more molds before the next autumn festival. lol. I started working on the pingpei skin after the tots went to bed tonight, and after a couple of hours, I've made 23 mooncakes of various sizes and cleaned up the kitchen. Hubs even had some before heading off to bed!

Bel, I used the fish mold even though it was cracked. You may not be able to see the crack (I hope). Thanks for sending the molds!

Rosie, recognize the molds you send me from Hong Kong? Thanks again, my dear friend!

Anne, I'll make more when I receive the plastic molds as I'm having so much fun! Can't wait!
