I made a few characters on Tuesday, và the first character I"m sharing for today"s post is Baymax. Love how easy it is lớn make him, lol. For the benefit of my readers who aren"t familiar with mooncake, mooncake is a traditional Chinese pastry, eaten during the mid-autumn festival. The one I"m sharing today is a spin-off from the traditional baked mooncake & it"s called snowskin mooncake. There is no baking involved, it"s heathier and it"s really easy to lớn make. Snowskin mooncake is a little like the Japanese mochi.

I made two designs for Baymax, I only showed the steps to lớn make the simpler one. For the full toàn thân version, I added fillings for both the head & the body, the hands and legs are just moulded using the snowskin. I"m using back the same snowskin mooncake recipe I shared last year, it"s the simplest I"ve found. Not the tastiest recipe I"ve tried but still acceptable. Feel không tính tiền to substitute with your own recipe.

The mooncakes were filled with passion fruit paste. I did not make the paste from stratch, the paste was store-bought. I remembered a few people asking me where I bought the paste last year.

This year the paste I"m using is from Kwong Cheong Thye, they have quite a few interesting flavours, in addition to lớn the traditional ones.
