These wooden kueh moulds are used to shape glutinous rice flour cakes and other Southeast Asian pastries, such as mooncakes. A mooncake is a round pastry with a rich red bean filling.
Shaped pastries and Chinese mooncakes are traditionally made to celebrate both the mid-Autumn festival, Zhongqiujie and Chinese New Year.
These wooden moulds are hand carved - and many still have the pencil marks showing how they have been cut.
Choose between the different kueh mould patterns to create a personalised pastry to offer to friends and family:
Flower - symbolises growth, fulfillment and new beginnings. Round mould.
Long Life - leaf-shaped with Chinese character.
Fish - fish-shaped with fins and tail, symbolises unity and fidelity.
Instructions for using the moulds for mooncakes: Separate the pastry into 15g pieces and roll them into round balls. Also separate the bean curd filling into 35g pieces and roll into round balls. Flatten the pastry into a round, flat disc and wrap it around the red bean filling. Roll the mooncakes in a little flour before pressing them into the mooncake mould. Tap the mould firmly on its side to release the mooncake. Bake until the pastry takes on a rich, golden colour.
