Hi there,

Thanks very much for posting your recipe. I have a question. Can you please show me the mooncake mould that you use.

I bought a mould over the weekend. The one I got has a lever to push the mooncake out.

Thanks.

Hi baking mum, may I know where to get the mooncake jelly mould? I went to phoon huat to find but they dont sell... thanks a lot for sharing!

yummy bear

Hugbear said...

Hi Mary-Anne, sorry for the late reply. I got the all the mooncake jelly moulds (including the mock egg yolk mould) from Ng Meng Huat in JB. Not sure if you can find it in other bakeware shops in Singapore. I don't think Phoon Huat sells them.

Hi all blogging friends- I manage to find all the moulds in Sun Lik along Seah street-forget the add.
They hv all the collections of moulds , books etc.

May I know the exact location of Ng Ming Huat in JB. I like to visit this shop but have no idea how to reach the place. Is it very far from the JB custom point. Do I need to travel or within walking distance to reach the bakeware shop.

Thank you
Candy

Hugbear said...

Hi shim, yes you are right, it should be lotus paste. Thanks for pointing out. I have amended my recipe accordingly.

Hi,

Can you please take a picture of lotus paste can (container)? I have lotus in can. How can I make it to a paste? Do I need to cook and add sugar? If so, how long and how much?

Thanks,

Mui Sim

Hugbear said...

Hi Mui Sim,

I don't use lotus paste can. I use the paste that comes in a plastic package that you can get from Phoon Huat or other shops that sell bakery stuff. If you want to cook lotus paste from scratch, you can find a recipe in Yochana's blog where she shared her recipe on how to make that. So far, I have not tried making lotus paste from scratch so I won't be able to help you on that.
