Mooncake ~ West Lake Garden

I really feel lucky when I received invitation from Sid to have a hands-on experience in mooncake making at West Lake Garden at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa.

Master Chef Wu Chee Keong be our “sifu” that day 🙂

The green tea snow skin and the milk tea & mocha filling.

Shall we start now?

1. Roll the snow skin dough in round shape.
2. Slightly press the ball shape dough.

Flattening the skin.

1. Make a hole in the milk tea filling
2. Then place the mocha filling into it.
3. Combine both filling & roll into ball shape.

1. & 2. Wrapped the filling with the fattening skin.
3. Roll into long oval shape.

1. Placing the mooncake into mold. Make sure you dust some flour into the mold to avoid the mooncake stick in the mold.
2. Pressing the mooncake.
3. Ta ta….beautiful mooncake released from the mold by giving the mold a few knocks on both sides.

Chef Wu was guiding Sunny.
