I’ve always preferred snowskin mooncakes over traditional baked ones. My husband David is the opposite – he’s for all things authentic and old-fashioned. One of my earliest memories of Mid-Autumn Festival were those of my Mom, using the meager savings left of her lean salary to buy different mini snowskin mooncakes from neighbourhood bakeries as a annual treat for my sister and I. I remembered that as a child, my favourite snowskin mooncakes would be the green coloured ones, in Pandan flavour. Oh how I would savour these mooncakes slowly to prolong the enjoyment. They weren’t exceptionally tasty but eating these snowskin mooncakes reminds me of my Mother’s sacrificial love.
Ever since I started earning my keep as a working adult, I buy Mooncakes for my Mum in return. Coming from a family of durian-lovers, we particularly love the durian snowskin mooncake from Emicakes. Made from pure durian pulp wrapped in a thin layer of snowkin, these Emicakes durian mooncakes make such delicious post-dinner dessert, the perfect pampering for loved ones at Mid-Autumn reunions. Be warned that you have to exercise a great deal of will power to stop at one (bite) before the entire box is devoured in minutes. Dana and I prefer the Mao Shan Wang as it’s slightly sweeter but David and my Mum likes the D24.
MAO SHAN WANG
Made only from the finest and freshest Mao Shan Wang durian flesh, enjoy the strong aroma complemented with the heady flavour and fibrous filling that you can only experience from Mao Shan Wang durians – slightly bitter yet sweet and buttery. I’ve forgotten how much I love Emicake MSW snowskin mooncakes until I took the 1st bite last night. So irresistible!
Besides its signature durian mooncakes, Emicakes has also launched two new flavours for 2015: Authentic Yam and Chocolate with Sea-Salted Caramel Truffle mooncakes.
Reminisce the good ol’ times with Yam snowskin mooncake! Bite into the soft snowskin and be met with the smooth and rich flavour of fresh Yam! A flavour you definitely can’t resist!
CHOCOLATE WITH ALMONDS AND SEA SALT CARAMEL TRUFFLE
This brand new flavour is carefully crafted by Emicake’s mooncake artiste, using decadent sea salt caramel truffle at the very core of its signature chocolate ganache mixed with crushed almonds.
