Mooncakes are always the first thing that comes to my mind whenever I think of the Mid-Autumn Festival. This year, the festival falls on 21 September 2021, and many hotels and restaurants are already accepting pre-orders. If you are looking for mooncakes that have both aesthetics and flavours, check out these bunny-shaped mochi mooncakes by Bynd Artisan and Sunday Folks.
“The Legend Of Chang E” is probably the most well-known myth of the Mid-Autumn Festival, but you might have also heard of the Jade Rabbit. Taking inspiration from the mystical creature, each of these bunny-shaped mochi mooncakes is handmade from a custom-made wooden mould.
On the outside, you will find the mochi snow skin that gives the mooncake a chewy texture. It also has gold flakes laid on the idents of the ears.
Plus, the eyes are marked with red food colouring which completes the look of an adorable bunny.
With just a bite, you’ll taste the delicious Japanese shiro-an aka white bean paste along with yuzu zest. The blend of flavours will be perfect for those that enjoy a combination of something traditional yet citrusy.
Starbucks’ Mid-Autumn Collection Filled With Frolicking Bunnies Is Too Freaking Cute
Inspired by the full moon, the white and champagne coloured circular packaging houses the mooncakes placed within. It comes with a Nappa leather handle that makes it easy to carry around.
On top of it, it also has a pink Rabbit Bag Charm that goes along with the theme of the collaboration.
Even when the Mid-Autumn Festival is over, the packaging could also work as a pleasing display piece or a home for your knick-knacks.
