This year I have to admit that mooncakes mood set in really early as I did received a mooncake list from my friends as early as end of June and already show what to have and privillage for early birds discounts. This year I got the privillage to set my foot into a hotel kicthen again to learn how to make moon cakes as this round I will be learning how to make Snowskin Mooncakes with the courtesy of Zuan Yuan, One World Hotel.
What is in the kitchen for us this round is to make Low Sugar Wheat Grass and Green Tea Snow Skin Mooncakes.
Ingredients involve: icing sugar, glutinous rice flour, shortening and green tea powder.
Then jus unwrap all the prepared ingredients. . . . and this round I the lucky bloggers around are lionelOng.com, Foodpoi.com and best of all our special guest of the night from all the way Melbourne, Australia is SneakyLily.
Then you just pour all the ingredient into the tray and mix around . .add half bowl of water and mix the flour and other ingredient with your hand till its start to get sticky.
pour the rest of the water into the tray and mix thoroughly till the whole ingredient mix well. End resulst should be a bit sticky huge green tea ball.
Then you prepare another tray that you roll it then weight to prepare on the skin.
Then you take another layer of skin which you have prepared roll it till its flat and a bit thick so when you wrap it wont break.
Place the think layer on your hand then place the greentea ‘bola’ on top of it. . .
press it gently and slowly roll it with your fingers till it slowly cover the whole ball on the outer layer.
Sneakylily serious in action . .
There you are. the darker green are the base inside and the one behind with a bit mixed with flour are the end result.
Then you place the ball into the wooden craft and press it gently till its even and solid, smack hard both on the left and right edge, shake a bit in the middle and turn it 180 degree hit hard on the table to enable the base to fall off.
Tadaaaa…this is what you get for the end result. . .with the crafting of logo onto the mooncake skin. Izint it is simple.?
Since I can do it.. I believe you can do it tooo . . .:D
After our hardwork in the kitchen then we were pamper with some food to digest before heading for mooncake tasting.
