Since my last attempt making figurine mooncake whereby the cakes do not look nice with those moulds, I tried to make another 2 batches using the 'goldfish' and 'pineapple' designs. Ingredients and method wise is exactly the same as per my previous posting [please refer to my earlier figurine mooncake postings for the recipe]. There is nothing wrong with the recipe or method and I am convinced it is the moulds.
Here are the pictures which show clearly the before and after baking of the mooncakes. This time I am happy with the result and I can present them to relatives and friends as gifts in conjunction with Mooncake Festival.
With the same portion of ingredients, I made 36 pieces each of the 2 designs.
|Before baking - goldfish design|

- Be careful when selecting the mooncake moulds.
- The mooncakes are very nice with golden brown colour without egg glaze. It looks lighter in the picture because of the lighting.
