Conrad Centennial Singapore


Whenever Mid-Autumn Festival approaches (it’s on September 13 this year), you’ll find mooncakes in many varieties, from the traditional with lotus seed paste and egg yolk, to snowskin versions with unique fillings. .



Check out the mooncakes from Conrad Centennial Singapore! This year's newly introduced varieties include Traditional Baked Honey Osmanthus, Traditional Baked Red Bean Paste and Orange Peel, Maple Walnut Snowskin and Blue Pea Flower Cream Cheese Snowskin mooncakes. .


Classic varieties, Traditional Baked Single Yolk in White Lotus Paste and Traditional Baked Double Yolk in White Lotus Paste mooncakes are also available and made in accordance to traditional recipes. All-time favourites - Green Tea Snowskin, Hazelnut Crunch in White Lotus Snowskin as well as the Sweet Potato in Crispy Filo Pastry mooncakes, will also make their return this year.

I have to admit that the box designs play a big part in influencing our decision – especially when it comes to gifting to our friends and family, a pretty mooncake box ups the luxury factor to make it a nicer gift. .

Conrad’s limited edition boxes (Emerald Green and Burgundy Red) have a classic crocodile-patterned finishing, making it the perfect jewellery chest.

Four Seasons Hotel Singapore


Gifting mooncakes to friends and family is one of the hallmark traditions of the Mid-Autumn Festival in Asia.



A pretty mooncake box ups the luxury factor to make it a nicer gift. Don’t miss the elegant mooncakes crafted by Michelin-starred Jiang-Nan Chun @fssingapore and encased in a lush, botanical inspired gift box which made a perfect gift.


For traditionalists, relish in collection of Traditional Baked Mooncakes such as the evergreen Silver Lotus Paste with Melon Seed, Silver Lotus Paste with Single Yolk, and Silver Lotus Paste with Double Yolk while also featuring returning signature Smoked Duck with Assorted Nuts and Lime inspired by Jiang-Nan Chun’s signature Peking duck, prepared in a mesquite wood-fire oven.

Each baked skin mooncake spotlights the natural flavour of top quality ingredients including premium silver lotus. Silver lotus refers to lotus that is young and fresh, requiring a lower quantity of oil and sugar to create the paste, making it a healthier option for all ages. If variety is desired, the Four Seasons Medley is sure to delight and please.

If you prefer snowskin, fresh on the menu this season is the tropical Passion Fruit with Dried Mango that is refreshingly tangy with a hint of sweet – a celebration of the Hotel's tropical paradise.

Traditionally known to have a number of health attributes such as enhancing skin complexion, the exquisite Bird’s Nest with Custard mooncake is itself a work of art where velvety custard perfectly envelopes and complements the bird’s nest core while lovers of the king of fruit will be thrilled with the smooth and creamy Mao Shan Wang Durian snowskin mooncake.

The Hazelnut Royaltine Chocolate delights with its blend of the crunchy Jivara chocolate praline base combined with fragrant hazelnut, a creative rendition the Hotel's well-loved hazelnut royaltine cake. 
These treasured treats are available for order now until September 13, 2019 from Four Seasons Hotel Singapore.

SunnyHills


This mid-autumn, @sunnyhillssg celebrates its 10th year anniversary by unveiling its new creation: Pineapple Custard mooncakes


If you looking for a healthier choice comparing to traditional mooncakes, the distinct flavors of pineapples with a dash of salted eggs is the winning combination that will surprises you and your family. 

Using only non-GM pineapples from Bagua Mountain, Central Taiwan, also known as Earth Pineapples, the pineapples are naturally sunbathed until they ripen and are then simmered into a golden paste.


SunnyHills uses a different baking technique for the Pineapple Custard Mooncake as compared to their Pineapple Cake, making the Pineapple Custard Mooncake's filling much smoother, leaving the pineapple custard subtle enough to complement the entire snack without overwhelming you with the different flavors! You can enjoy them with a cup of hot tea.
