Every Mid-Autumn Festival, I look forward to two things. One is the sight of children carrying lanterns and lighting candles at night. That innocent scene always brings back fond childhood memories.

The other is the Raffles Hotel mooncakes. More specifically, the legendary snow-skin mooncakes with champagne truffle and ganache. It’s a big hit with the fans.

The online orders for 2009 are already open. Have you ordered yours yet? Take note of the early bird, credit card and bulk order discounts!

This year, the mooncakes are packaged in a gorgeous lilac-coloured box. I love it! The box colour changes yearly and has become quite the collector’s item! However this is the first time they are reusing the same box from the previous year’s.

A new addition to the 2009 menu is the snow-skin apricot mooncake with popping candy. It’s an innovative creation with pieces of crackling candy tucked within the truffle.
