Snowskin mooncakes

Many hotels, restaurants and even TWG and SIA are after a slice of the mooncake market. Even the famous Hong Kong ones such as Peninsula Hotel has a stall at the fair. But after tasting different snowskin mooncakes at the Takashimaya Mooncake Fair, I must say I was impressed with the taste of the yuzu and champagne truffle mooncakes from Baker's Well , a small bakery in Katong. The taste of the snowskin was light and chewy, never over powdery like some of the ones I've tasted. And the yuzu was such a delightful contrast to the sweetness of the lotus seed paste. Heard that snowskin mooncakes are a Singapore creation. When eaten fresh, it really taste heavenly and the translent colours of the skin make them lovely for display, just as beautiful as macaroons I must say. However they are only available once a year during the Mid-Autumn Festival.
