3 Ways To Get The Best Mooncake Deals In Town

Alright, let’s get straight to the point – who thinks mooncakes are expensive?

The thing here is, some would say mooncakes are expensive, but if you count in the effort and time used to make mooncakes, perhaps the price is not that pricey after all.

Anyway, we are not here to argue about that. What we want to do is to share how can you get the best mooncake deal in town! Want to know more? Read on!

1. Buy During Promotion

It’s not rocket science really. Buying anything during promotion is by far the easiest way to get the best deal. How do you spot them? Well, some mooncake manufacturers run a month-long promotion selling their mooncakes at promotional booths. You can easily find them in shopping malls or Mid-Autumn fairs. There are also mooncake manufacturers that offer discount codes or cashbacks when you purchase a certain number of mooncakes or do online purchases.

2. Buy After The Mooncake Season

The whole idea of buying mooncakes is for you to enjoy them during the mooncake season. But you can still enjoy them after the Mid-Autumn festival. Mooncake prices can drop up to 30% and more once the season is over! Considering the fact that mooncakes have a long shelf life, if you love mooncakes and don’t mind having them after the season, then this is the best way for you to enjoy as many mooncake flavours as you want. Take note that some flavours may not be available anymore.

3. Buy From Home Bakers

This is a bit tricky. The prices for mass-produced mooncakes can be cheaper than home bakers. However, without the brand name, expensive ingredients and fancy packaging, the price of home bakers mooncakes can be significantly cheaper. You’ll need to scout around for the best prices though. On the plus point, if you choose to buy from home bakers, think of it that you are supporting their dream to someday become one of the big brands too. Or that you’re encouraging someone to go after his/her passion. You can’t get a better deal than that, can you?

Come to think of it, we still have 2 mooncakes in the fridge. Off to cut and enjoy a slice!

News: There’s Extra Income In Baking Mooncakes

MOONCAKE fan Noraini Mat Piah appreciates the festive treat more now after learning to make them at the Women of Will’s (WOW) Community Kitchen in PPR Batu Muda, Kuala Lumpur.

“I bake cakes and cookies for sale at home to earn some extra money.

“Those are easier to make as I just need to mix the ingredients and pop them into the oven to bake, ” said Noraini, a mother of five.

“Mooncakes are more time-consuming and tedious as each ingredient requires separate preparation, so it takes more effort.

“It gives me great satisfaction to know I can make mooncakes now.”

Noraini, 54, said the mooncakes produced by her fellow bakers at WOW’s Community Kitchen were much better this year, compared to when they first learnt to make them last year.

“We improved on our mistakes, such as not creating fillings that are too oily.

“Despite our trainer’s easy-to-follow instructions, it took some trial and error before we were able to produce satisfactory mooncakes, ” she added.

Noraini is happy the kitchen has received more orders this year, based on word-of-mouth recommendations and returning customers from last year.

“My friends and neighbours were cautious about consuming mooncakes, but I have convinced them that the ingredients and production space are all halal, ” she said.

Noraini and Normala Shariff are among 10 women in the B40 group who have been learning how to make a diverse range of baked products, including cookies, cakes, pies and breads, since WOW’s Community Kitchen opened in May 2019.

Normala said she joined one of WOW’s entrepreneurship programmes before the opportunity to join the kitchen came up.

She added that she had also learnt the basics of food handling, proper hygiene and importance of using fresh and good quality ingredients.

“Making mooncakes is more difficult compared to other baked products.

“While we learned how to make two types of mooncakes, we only produce snow skin versions for sale as the traditional baked ones take more effort to bake and ensure consistent quality.”

Sadiah Jaffar highlighted that their snow skin mooncakes use only natural colouring for the skin as organic colours were safer for consumption.

“The blue comes from the blue pea flower that is grown around the PPR flats. The pink comes from dragon fruit.

“We do everything ourselves, from drying and blending the flowers to extract the colours, ” said the 65-year-old, adding that the women also prepared the lotus paste filling with melon seed and handled the packing themselves.

When the group first learned how to make mooncakes last year, Normala said it took several attempts before they were able to produce the right consistency for the filling and the right shape using a mould.

“Since each of us is better at certain things, we have divided the tasks based on our skills so the mooncake production is faster and more efficient, ” said the 47-year-old.

“I hope we are able to improve our techniques soon so that we can also produce baked mooncakes for sale, as well as expand our range of mooncake fillings and natural colouring.

“I am also looking forward to learning how to make other items in future, perhaps even ice cream as that is popular among children and adults, ” she added. Empowering

disadvantaged womenWOW, a non-profit organisation, runs projects to improve the lives of disadvantaged women from local B40 communities by giving them an opportunity to be empowered and self-sufficient.

These include entrepreneurship training to equip women with the necessary skills needed to run their businesses as well as skills training that focus on developing practical expertise.

The participants, who include single mothers and women with incapacitated husbands living in poverty, are taught the skills and knowledge to develop and run sustainable businesses, to be financially independent as well as able to care for themselves and their families.

“We started the mooncake project two years ago, upon the women’s request to learn how to make mooncakes.

“We roped in Vanessa Yap, who makes mooncakes herself, to train them, ” said WOW Community Kitchen special projects manager Susheela Sabaratnam.

“At the moment, they only produce the snow skin version for sale.

“It is more challenging for them to ensure consistency for the baked mooncakes, so they only make those for special events or for the PPR community.”

Susheela noted that there had been improvements in this year’s snow skin mooncakes, such as the lotus paste filling having a smoother texture and denser flavour and more centred egg yolk placement.

“To keep up with market demand, we are offering customers a choice of a box of two or four pieces of mooncakes this year and using a smaller mould as people are cutting down on sugar intake.

“As the products are made fresh and without preservatives, we require a three-day lead time for orders, ” she said.

Customers for the products are from WOW’s network and corporate supporters.

The women work in half-day shifts on weekdays and are paid based on their working hours.

Their schedule is flexible to allow them to manage their households and appointments.

“WOW’s Community Kitchen sold 350 pieces of mooncakes last year and has thus far received orders for 500 pieces this year, ” said Susheela.

She said the women were able to make between 70 and 100 pieces of mooncakes daily.

“During festive seasons, the women will be busy making cookies and hampers for sale.

“Everything is baked here in the central kitchen to ensure freshness and quality, as well as to allow a larger production scale.”

She noted that the Covid-19 pandemic had a major impact on WOW’s women entrepreneurs, since no Ramadan bazaars or roadside stalls were allowed at the height of the movement control order (MCO).

“WOW helped them set up online market platforms during Ramadan and trained them, via Zoom, on the steps needed to take their businesses online, ” said Susheela.

“During the recovery MCO stage, the women at WOW’s Community Kitchen made frozen curry puffs and doughnuts for sale as well as baked products ordered by corporations.”

Besides introducing new items for this year’s Deepavali and Christmas celebrations, she said WOW was also looking at upskilling the bakers by training them to make gelato and keto-friendly products.

“We will also teach them digital marketing to enable them to adapt to online businesses, although the learning curve may be steeper.

“As WOW works on empowering the women, we hope they will eventually be able to run the Community Kitchen themselves, ” she added.

While the Mid-Autumn Festival falls on Oct 1 this year, the mooncakes from WOW will be available for sale up to a week after that.

Prices range from RM55 for a box of two pieces without yolk to RM110 for a box of four pieces with yolk (not inclusive of delivery).

News: Kak Semah’s halal mooncakes a hot seller

Kak Semah’s halal mooncakes a hot seller

By Goh Pei Pei – September 6, 2019 @ 8:01am

KUCHING: Noor Asmah Mohamed Moktar loved munching mooncakes ever since she was a teen.

She recalled spending between RM20 and RM25 for just one piece of the traditional Chinese cake from a renowned hotel here more than 20 years ago.

This was when it had yet to be commercialised, so it was difficult to find, more so when it came to halal mooncakes.YOU MAY ALSO LIKE

The mooncake is usually filled with red bean or lotus seed paste, but it is not unusual to find other varieties of flavour too.

It was exclusively made by the Chinese community, either in their homes or at traditional biscuit shops for the Mid-Autumn festival.

“I remember cutting it into small pieces and savouring slowly because it was quite expensive.”

Asmah’s love for mooncake took a sweeter turn when she got married.

“My late mother-in-law was a Chinese Muslim convert.

“She created a recipe for halal mooncakes by replacing the pork lard (contained in the traditional mooncake) with halal ingredients.

“Since then, I got to enjoy mooncakes without having to burn a hole in my pocket.

“Although she explained to me the art of baking mooncakes, I didn’t try it myself until she died.”

Speaking to the New Straits Times at her home in Petra Jaya, near here recently, Asmah, who is more well-known as Kak Semah, said the halal mooncake recipe was taught to her without the exact measurements by her late mother-in-law.

It took her two years to figure out the exact measurement of each ingredient needed for the delicacy.

Over the years, she kept on improving, fine-tuning it and creating more mooncake flavours.

Initially the 43-year-old began baking mooncakes in the two original flavours, red bean and lotus paste, for her family and friends in 2007.

Having received positive feedback, it encouraged her to venture out further.

“In 2009, I decided to bake on a small scale and sold it at a food court nearby. I sold some 300 pieces.

“My intention was to introduce and share the delicious traditional Chinese cake among Muslims.

“Initially, some (Muslims) were sceptical as they viewed it as kuih Cina and assumed it was non-halal.”

After explaining and assuring that her mooncake was in fact halal, Kak Semah said her Muslim customers overcame their fear.

As news began to spread on how good her halal mooncakes were, so did the demand.

Orders this year are expected to touch the 10,000 mark.

Now, her seasonal business has not only become a family affair, but has also seen the involvement of her three closest friends.

Together, they are able to produce between 400 and 500 pieces of mooncakes daily.

With each mooncake weighing 150g each, Kak Semah now produces 20 flavours.

This includes lotus yolk, tiramisu, green tea, sweet corn, coffee and mixed nuts, among others.

Her top sellers are plain red bean, Oreo and durian paste.

The mother-of-three has sought to maintain the price of the delicacy between RM15 and RM28 despite the rising price of ingredients.

Today, her mooncakes are a big hit with Malaysians in Sarawak and have also found connoisseurship in Sabah, the peninsula, Brunei and Singapore.

Kek Semah hopes halal mooncakes could go towards contributing and strengthening unity among the country’s multiracial society.

“I always believe good food will bring people closer together and what better way to prove this than through halal mooncakes, which was uniquely a traditional Chinese delicacy and festival.

“It allows us to understand the festival, culture and beliefs of other races and religions.”

The mooncake festival or Mid-Autumn festival is celebrated around the world on the 15th of the eighth month in the Chinese Lunar calendar, which falls on Sept 13 this year.

Top 5 Mooncake Flavours According To Our Tummy

Do you know how many mooncake flavours are there in the market? If your answer is yes, we take our hats off you!

We’re not sure about other countries but here in Malaysia, new mooncake flavours are introduced to the market on a yearly basis.

And that makes a lot of sense because mooncakes are highly versatile. They can be filled with all sorts of filling – sweet or savoury!

So how do you choose which filling to buy? In our case, we like to stick to the classics. Go with traditional flavours, something you’re familiar with. Once you’ve gotten a hang of it, move on to non-traditional flavours.

Let’s cut to the chase and see the top 5 flavours according to our tummy.

1. Mixed Nuts Mooncake 五仁月饼

This mooncake flavour is commonly found in K’s home town. It’s a pretty healthy mooncake since it has five kinds of nuts or kernels such as walnuts, almonds, sesame seeds, melon seeds, red beans and etc. Naturally, the mooncake has a nutty and sweet flavour because of the fillings. We love this particular mooncake flavour to bits mainly because it reminds us of his home town.

2. Red Bean Mooncake 豆沙月饼

The classic sweet red bean mooncake flavour never goes wrong. The smooth and rich taste of sweet bean paste always brings back our childhood memories of eating bread and pastries filled with sweet bean paste. There’s just something comforting about biting into a piece of your childhood.

3. White Lotus Mooncake 莲蓉月饼

Ooohh, and here’s another one of our favourites! The lotus mooncake is filled with silky smooth white lotus paste. We love this flavour very much and always try to find the less sweeter option for family and friends.

4. Salted Egg Yolk Mooncake 蛋黄月饼

Let’s get this straight, to all the salted egg yolk lovers out there, the entire mooncake is not filled with salted egg yolk. Rather, the mooncake is filled with white lotus or any other flavours and at the very centre of the mooncake, you’ll find 1 or 2 salted egg yokes. Sounds crazy to put something salty with something sweet but it works! And this odd combination is what makes this mooncake so popular. Just try it!

5. Green Tea Mooncake 茶叶月饼

Okay, so we’re making a huge boo boo. Green tea flavoured mooncakes are not one of our top favourites. But considering the fact that they’re pretty healthy and not as sweet compared to other mooncake fillings, we thought, hey, let’s just put it in the list. Don’t get us wrong, we love green tea. But green tea mooncakes? Hey, if we love green tea, surely we can learn to love green tea mooncakes too. For health!

And there you have it, our top 5 mooncake flavours! The best thing about these flavours are you can find them easily. The only difference would be the textures, sweetness and smoothness levels.

Let us know if you love any of these flavours too!
