Moon Cakes!

Eugene and his daughter Amy had it all set up for us!

This is the mold for the moon cakes!

We were all thrilled with how good the turned out!

This is one that Sarah made!

This one was my first successful attempt!

Anna just played and opted out of moon cake making!

We made mooncakes with our FCC group this Friday. One of the members had it all set up for us! We watched a video on how to do it and then attempted this amazing feet! I never would have even tried to do this alone but I was thrilled to do it with the group! 

Sarah remembered eating moon cakes in China but had never had the experience of making them. She made 2 of moon cakes and then choose to play! A favorite pastime of hers! I can't blame her, they were tedious and tricky to make! It ended up being the adults in the kitchen banging the molds on the wooden cutting boards.  

Thank you Eugene for this fun afternoon!

Looks like *fun*! And at least you got to know what exactly was going into them! The ones we bought in China were confiscated by customs! Perhaps it was for the best! We did end up buying more here...expensive and yucky.
