Wooden Mooncake Mould

Wooden Mooncake Mould

Description

Chinese mooncakes are traditionally made to celebrate the mid-Autumn festival, Zhongqiujie. A mooncake consists of a round pastry with a rich red bean filling. Before baking the cakes are pressed into a wooden mooncake mould which creates a decorative pattern on the top and sides of the cake. The mooncake moulds are hand carved - and many still have the pencil marks showing how they have been cut.

Choose between the different mooncake mould patterns to create a personalised mooncake to offer to friends and family during the mid-Autumn festival:

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 moulding 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.
