As a result of that, I decided to sign up for Melinda's Taiwanese Mooncake (of Apple Bakings)class together with my gal pal Sue so that perhaps I can make my own mooncakes. We spent almost the entire day at Melinda's and as usual, class was really fun. There was so much chatting and laughing. Actually, it was a rather great way to loose weight too.. haha.. as we were all so engrossed in making and baking these mooncakes, that by the time we were all done and seated, it was close to 4:30pm. Well, to reward ourselves, we wolfed (actually it just me) down a few of these little yummy cakes...but I had enough to pass around to some friends later.
These are some of the mooncakes made.. there were others but I didn't do that great a job with the phone camera. They turned out rather blur so did not post them. If you are interested to have a look, I do believe Melinda would have plenty to show you :)... perhaps if you are nice, she might have some tasty samples left :D
There are several varieties here.. some with red bean paste, some with lotus paste, salted duck egg yolk, century eggs.
