Taro coconut snowy mooncakes

In Chinese culture specifically, the round shape of the mooncakes represents the moon and symbolizes completeness & reunion.

The combination of these three ingredients gives the mooncakes its signature soft yet slightly chewy texture. The filling of snowskin mooncakes can range from jammy fruit centres to aromatic taro or custard fillings. The possibilities are endless."
