              joce, the champagne truffles mooncakes sound yummy. i bought mine at one of the shops at taka basement. it has lima bean paste. it's not as sweet as the traditional ones. very yummy too. it's called amethyst pastry and cakes. the lady does a not so sweet version of the flaky yam mooncake as well. my mum learnt the art of making mooncakes from her as well.

                My sis-in-law bought this... white choc in the centre of the mooncake. Totally satisfying for choc-addicts like me!

                        i bought the ice-cream mooncakes.... but its meant to be a gift.... resisted the temptation to buy it for myself.... my hubby was teasing me that might as well buy ice-cream and eat....

                          i love mooncake festival when i was a little gal. that is the only time i can "play" with fire. we will light the corridor with candles and have fun playing and making lotsa noise without getting scolded....

                            my mom did try to bake mooncakes before but somehow to achieve that thin skin, not so sweet lotus paste and to perfect the art of putting the egg yolk in the centre is not easy. by the end of the baking process, you would wonder why you are baking it when it is cheaper to get it from the store.

                            would recommend those who are interesting in making mooncakes to try making snow skin mooncakes instead. IT is easier and fuss free becoz you dont even have to bake it! As for ingredients, you can get it from the store in Sembawang MRT station. ( sorry... dont know what is the name of the store)
