Ardent fans of the Mandarin Orchard’s mooncakes will be comforted to know that the hotel has maintained their recipe for the ever popular Baked Mooncake with Single/Double Yolk and White Lotus Paste (单/双黄白莲蓉月饼).  If you’d do a price comparison, go for the double yolk for maximum satisfaction at only a dollar difference! Eat first, exercise later ok!  >.<

Signature Baked Mooncake with Mixed Nuts and Jamón Ibérico (伊比利亞火腿五仁月饼)

Enjoyed my weekend breakfast at the pool with friends sharing a @mandarinorchard 's Signature Baked Mooncake with Mixed Nuts and Jamón Ibérico (伊比利亞火腿五仁月饼). . 3 out of 3 of us agree that the mooncake is delicately just sweet enough to please the palette without having us on the treadmill for hours.  On top of that, the hint of woody flavour in the ham enriched the combined flavours and texture of the mixed nuts wrapped within the golden pastry skin. . Depending on the type of feed for the black Iberian pigs and the curation period, I read that the incredible Spanish ham can easily cost S$150 to S$300 per kg in Singapore and is probably known as the most delicious ham in the Universe. ^.^ . Mandarin Orchard's Mid Autumn treats come in a box of four for baked mooncakes and box of eight for the snow skin variety, either in single or assorted flavours.  If you are one who loves to try a bit of everything, our vote goes to the Assorted Baked Mooncake Selection (4pcs, $72) or Assorted Mini Snow Skin Selection (8pcs consisting of 2 pcs of 4 different flavours, $65). . Available from today (1st Aug) onwards, Mandarin Orchard's mooncakes can be purchased from Shisen Hanten (Level 35). You can also make your purchase at major shopping malls starting from 11th Aug (details in blog post). This is a must try! . We have a giveaway coming up shortly.  So keep calm and join our giveaway to be launched this week. . . . . #burpple #mooncake #mandarinorchard #mooncakebox #packaging  #SGParentBloggers  #instafood #instafoodie #instagood  #sgigfoodies #foodporn #foodaddict #whati8today#sgfood #sgfoodie #sgigers #foodcoma #nomnomnomnom #foodshare #instadaily #sgfoodunion #yumyum #tastyshoutouts #delicious #foodpics #hungrygowhere #eatoutsg #openricesg #sgmakandiaries

With the popularity of salted egg yolk at an all-time high, this year’s new snow skin flavour creation is the Mini Snow Skin Salted Egg Custard with Manuka Honey Corn (迷你冰皮奶黄麦卢卡蜜玉米月饼).  The subtle taste of the salted egg custard is beautifully balanced with the sweetness of the corn and Manuka honey, encased in a layer of soft snow skin.

Last year’s new flavour, Mini Snow Skin Red Wine Cranberry Paste and Yuzu Lemongrass Mooncake (迷你冰皮红酒蔓越莓与柚子香茅月饼) makes a return due to popular demand, together with all-time signature favourite, the Mini Snow Skin Lychee Martini and White Chocolate Mooncake (迷你冰皮荔枝马丁尼朱古力冰皮月饼), containing a smooth creamy filling with a hint of Martini encased in luscious white chocolate, all enveloped in a white pillowy–soft snow skin.

For something more traditional, opt for the Mini Snow Skin Yam and Yam Paste Mooncake (迷你冰皮芋头月饼) that is humbly tasty without an overbearing sweetness.  This is one of Audrey’s favourites.

The Mini Snow Skin Green Tea Paste with Azuki Red Bean Mooncake (迷你冰皮绿茶与日本红豆月饼) are our all-time favourites.  We were told that high quality matcha was used to make the paste as confirmed by the rich fragrance of the tea leaves we tasted with every bite.  As the saying goes, not all green tea are the same and we’d highly recommend this flavour!

    Really hope that I can win a set of these gorgeous mooncakes so that I can share with my family and loved ones. It is on this special day that we gather with our loved ones and enjoy mooncakes and tea over chats. My parents would be the happiest. Mooncake is their favourite. Not only can they taste the delicious mooncakes which go very well with their chinese tea, they can also see, talk and play with their grandchildren on this special day. It’s so warming and so wonderful.

    My parents are already very old. And mooncake festival is only celebrated once a year. Therefore, I hope to win for them (while they are still healthy and around with me) as well as for the rest of my loved ones to enjoy this fabulous mooncakes for this coming festival gathering. Apart from that, this mooncake is very important to me as it will lead us home uniting our loved ones together.

    I wanna share them with my family esp my dad who terribly loves Mooncakes so much.

    Also, I wanna reward my father for devoting himself to the family. He slogged tirelessly days and nights struggling to support the family. Thanks to him for providing us (his kids) with a place to live in, showering us with love, bringing us up and be the pillar of the family.

    Hope to win. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
