The Mid-Autumn Festival means lots of wonderful Moon Cakes!

Moon Cakes are a VERY popular treat to have during the Mid-Autumn Festival. They’re so popular in fact, that often you’ll find people ordering Moon Cakes several weeks in advance to the actual festival! Here in Hong Kong, Moon Cakes are specially created by several stores and are made to be both exciting to look at, as well as incredibly delicious. Starbucks has a Moon Cake promotion featuring gorgeous packaging, Kee Wah Bakery has stunning supreme Moon Cakes, and Häagen-Dazs offers a wide variety of ice-cream Moon Cakes. Here are 5 interesting details you may not know about this delectable delicacy:

– Moon Cakes are symbolic of family reunion

– One folk-tale suggests that Moon Cakes were used during the Yuan Dynasty as a means of sending messages between the Han people when they were planning an uprising against Mongol rule

– Some people prefer just to eat the skin (the outer layer) of Moon Cakes

– In 2014, 20 Moon Cake masters created a Moon Cake that had a diameter over 2 meters long

– During the Mid-Autumn Festival, some Moon Cakes can sell for over HK$1000

Interesting, right? You can even try to make your very own Moon Cake using this recipe from Fine Dining Lovers! We hope you all had a wonderful Mid-Autumn Festival!

Learn some fun facts about the Mid-Autumn Festival!

Hong Kong will be celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival on September 24th this year! If you’re curious to know more about this festival, then check out a summary right here!

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival and is typically observed in either September or October each year. It is also sometimes referred to as the Moon Festival. To celebrate, people will often get together with family and ring in the festival together. A popular treat during this time is the Moon Cake, which is often made with an egg yolk inside, and a sweet filling such as lotus paste, red bean paste etc. Moon Cakes have become so popular, they can now be found across the globe too!

During this time of year, people also enjoy playing with lanterns. Lanterns now come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, featuring colorful and kawaii characters, flowers, shapes etc. It’s a real treat seeing all those beautiful lanterns lit up at night! Hong Kong also has lion and dragon dances throughout the city, to celebrate. As the day after the Mid-Autumn Festival is usually a public holiday in places where it is officially observed, many people also enjoy travelling during this time.
