This year’s Mid-Autumn Festival will happen on the 8th of September 2014. Starting from now and in the weeks to come, restaurants, bakeries, hotels and even Singapore Airlines will be offering a selection of mooncake delights for all to choose from. Man Fu Yuan at the Intercontinental Singapore is presenting range of classic baked delights complemented by an assortment of delicately crafted snowskin gems. New this year is the series of Shanghai Mooncakes where a buttery pastry crust is used to encase the luxuriously smooth lotus paste stuffed with either macadamia nuts or the robustly flavoured salted egg yolk. The packaging for this year’s mooncakes are also elegantly beautiful. An amethyst-hued coffret designed in collaboration with students from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, with each mooncake individually packaged with its own butterfly box makes the mooncake choices from Man Fu Yuan excellent gifts for friends, loved ones and business associates.
The snowskin mooncakes available this year are:
- Green tea paste with dragonball jasmine
- Mao Shan Wang Durian with Coconut
- White Lotus with Macadamia Nuts
- Sesame Paste with Sesame Seeds
A Snowskin Mooncake Combination which includes one of each variant above will retail for $57++. The selection of Mao Shan Wang Durian with Coconut is available in pairs ($31++) or as a set of four ($57++).
Mooncake classics like the double salted egg yolk; assorted nuts; and red bean paste with melon seeds will also be available.
